Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312171951, Paperback)During World War II, young English women left the cozy world of traditional female jobs for exhausting agricultural labor so that male farm workers could take up arms. Agatha, Stella, and Prue are from distinctly different backgrounds and social classes, but genuine patriotism for their country binds them together. Pushed beyond their imagined limits, they all achieve what their culture has denied them as women: adventure, physical challenge, and personal growth. As ordinary citizens fighting for their country the best way they can, they transform themselves into women of honor, courage, and stature, proving themselves more noble than the highest generals.

Soon after the Battle of Britain, three young women - Prue a man-eating apprentice hairdresser from Manchester, Stella a dreamy Surrey girl, giddily in love, and Agatha, a Cambridge graduate - are catapulted from their contrasting worlds and find themselves sharing a dormitory together in the depths of the West Country as land girls, and laying the foundations for a friendship that will last a lifetime.
