Maureen Bolster played a rich and varied part in the war effort, first as a billeting officer in Surrey; then as a Wren courier, delivering secret documents nationwide and finally as a Wren stoker as the Royal Navy geared up for D-Day. Once or twice a week she wrote to Eric to tell him about her experiences, to keep him informed of conditions on the home front and to express her hopes and fears for the future.

In these letters we get to see at very close hand what the day to day life in war time America looked like. I do not think many Americans have any appreciation for how frequently American towns were re-energized, rebuilt and repopulated by the war effort. This book gives an interesting look at life in the early days of World War II, from the eyes of a journalist traveling the country. It answers some of the questions I wish I had asked my parents. For the parts of the country that I'm familiar with, it was a vivid contrast between then and now.
