Summary

Summary

Written nearly 60 years ago, compiled from her letters to her husband stationed with the Royal Air Force in the Middle East during World War 2 this is the remarkable story of a young woman who knew nothing about farms or animals buckling down to 'do her bit' for the war effort by turning her well-ordered home into a farm.

In this journal of the farm's first year, Barbara records her delights and disappointments and provides a unique insight into the dramatic changes in one woman's life during wartime, written with great humor, optimism and plenty of practical advice.
