The Daisy Club

Average Rating:
Rate this:
Twistleton is a village untouched by time, taking its rhythms from the countryside around. Daisy, Jean, Freddie and their friends Aurelia and Laura are devoted to the place, so that when war breaks out Twistleton becomes the embodiment of everything for which they are fighting. For the previous generation the new conflict causes private despair, increased when Twistleton is requisitioned by the Army. Turfed out of their houses, the villagers take refuge at the Hall. It is here that evacuees from the East End, butler and countryman weld together to fight common enemies, whether drunken troops in the village, the bombs from the air, or rationing and the bitter weather. They all know only victory will do. With death haunting their every moment, love is their one all-too-fleeting consolation - and also their final triumph.

This is a very good account of WWII from the point of view of the English people rather than from a military perspective. Its heartbreaking to think that someone born in 1900 would have lived through the horrors, loss and hardship of both the First and Second World war. Aunt Maude in this books represents such people.

With four main characters in this book, one has to be careful to make a mental note of the background of each as they come up or the story could get confusing. Overall though this is a well written story with just the right balance of description dialogue and action. Well worth the read both for entertainment and educational value.
