This is a lovely collection of tales, exploring different generations of women during and after WW2.
In an ever changing society their hopes, dreams and recollections are explored in this extraordinary collection of stories.

I'm always fascinated in the women's perspective, especially from a different culture than mine. Thanks for bringing this book to my attention!
