Spirited Henrietta wishes she was the kind of doctors wife who knew exactly how to deal with the daily upheavals of war. But then, everyone in her close-knit Devonshire village seems to find different ways to cope: theres the indomitable Lady B, who writes to Hitler every night to tell him precisely what she thinks of him; the terrifyingly efficient Mrs Savernack, who relishes the opportunity to sit on umpteen committees and boss everyone around; flighty, flirtatious Faith who is utterly preoccupied with the latest hats and flashing her shapely legs; and then theres Charles, Henriettas hard-working husband who manages to sleep through a bomb landing in their neighbours garden. With life turned upside down under the shadow of war, Henrietta chronicles the dramas, squabbles and loyal friendships that unfold in her affectionate letters to her 'dear childhood friend Robert. Warm, witty and perfectly observed, Henriettas War brings to life a sparkling community of determined troupers who pull together to fight the good fight with patriotic fervour and good humour.Henriettas War is part of The Bloomsbury Group, a new library of books from the early twentieth-century chosen by readers for readers.
