    I picked this up at a local library sale to put in my short story bookbox, but didn t get round to reading it in time But now I ve read it and was suitably impressed by how different the stories are Although they tend to be from the women s point of view, they varied so much that I didn t get bored Face of My People was good, as was The Black Madonna and The Iconoclasts, but my favourite was Mysterious Kor by Elizabeth Bowen, mainly as it invoked a sense of mystery and supernatural otherness I picked this up at a local library sale to put in my short story bookbox, but didn t get round to reading it in time But now I ve read it and was suitably impressed by how different the stories are Although they tend to be from the women s point of view, they varied so much that I didn t get bored Face of My People was good, as was The Black Madonna and The Iconoclasts, but my favourite was Mysterious Kor by Elizabeth Bowen, mainly as it invoked a sense of mystery and supernatural otherness

    This book was interesting enough, but depressing Some other collections of stories I ve read from WWII at least touch on funny things that happen, even in the midst of war, but thesenot so much I read them in fits and starts because I couldn t takethan a couple at a time Not to say they weren t well written, although I do quibble with some of the selections made For example, the Mrs Miniver story included was not, I thought, one of the better ones.All in all, I m glad I read it b This book was interesting enough, but depressing Some other collections of stories I ve read from WWII at least touch on funny things that happen, even in the midst of war, but thesenot so much I read them in fits and starts because I couldn t takethan a couple at a time Not to say they weren t well written, although I do quibble with some of the selections made For example, the Mrs Miniver story included was not, I thought, one of the better ones.All in all, I m glad I read it but it s probably not one I ll revisit

    These are very readable stories that give women s perspectives on WWII I enjoyed reading war stories that weren t about battles The stories about the London Blitz were particularly interesting.
