Rate this:
Daisy lives at Twistleton Hall, along with her unmarried Aunt Augusta, and the spirits of her four dead uncles from World War One. Her life therefore has been overshadowed by the Great War, as has those of her friends Freddie and Lorna who live nearby. Daisy, always looking to escape the gloom of the Hall, has known them since the three girls were all sent for a smattering of education to the Court, where Freddie's Aunt Jessie purported to run a small private school. Now it is 1938, invasion is expected, but the bit of their country that turns out to be most in need of defending is their own beloved Twisteleton, but not as it happens from the Nazis. From the Hardcover edition.

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.
