    1. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in return for my review.I had a hard time understanding what was happening at first since I did not watch the TV series. It was an interesting read once I understood what was happening. I wish the pace of this story was faster. The author described very well and his writing is fantastic.

    2. Based on the BBC drama this book focussed on Connie and her life in London before joining the Land Army. I had read the synopsis and I knew this was a feature but I thought the main story would be the Land Girls in general and the farm but it wasn't which was a tad disappointing.The story did flow along very well though and the attention to historical detail was good.There was enough drama, twists and turns to keep me hooked as I literally read the book in two large chunks.Although it wasn't qui [...]

    3. I am addicted to period dramas, and the World War II era versions are plentiful, particularly BBC productions. The creator of Land Girls (you can see it on Netflix), Roland Moore, has planned a series of follow-up stories where the stories continue. Women assigned to the Woman’s Land Army in the UK were relocated from the city to farms throughout the country: working the land in support of the war effort. Women from all walks of life were brought together – and this story focuses on Connie C [...]

    4. I have never watched the TV series, but I do enjoy books about women in WW2 (makes a change from the psychological thrillers & murders I usually read) so thought this was a good choice.The fact that I didn't know the characters from the TV series really didn't matter as I found this an easy book to read without knowing the backstories of the characters. Enough information was given throughout the story so the reader didn't wonder what was going on.Although this is ostensibly about 'Land Girl [...]

    5. Trivial and unbelievable story of one of the characters from the TV series of Land Girls. The characters are shallow and tw0-dimensional (perhaps even one dimensional!) and the 'plot' is weak and ridiculous. The book appears to have been written quickly to cash in on the popularity of the TV series. It does it no favours. Thank you to Netgalley for an Advance Reader Copy.

    6. The Women's Land Army (WLA) was a British civilian organisation created during the First and Second World Wars so women could work in agriculture, replacing men called up to the military. Women who worked for the WLA were commonly known as Land Girls. - From I haven't come across a book that told LAND GIRLS stories before, therefore I was extremely excited to read this. In LAND GIRLS: HOMECOMING, Roland Moore pens down the story of Connie Carter, one of the protagonists from the tv show. I hadn' [...]

    7. I really enjoyed this book - Having not seen the TV series, it was initially a bit difficult to catch up, but I was quickly engrossed in the story and characters. I appreciated the imagery and references to the WWII time period. However, I most enjoyed the pacing of the story, the unexpected twists and turns, and how the outcome of all the major characters came together.

    8. Loved this book . It’s was so lovely to read the continuing story of all the Land Girls after the TV series was cancelled. It carries on right where the TV series ended. Wonderful, can’t wait for the next book.

    9. Disappointing bookI bought this book, thinking it was about land girls, but instead it was all about crime bosses in London. Sadly, not too much about the actual role the land girls played.

    10. Good readI wish the series was still going. This new "episode" is following Vicar George and new wife Connie as they make a life together. Things aren't going so well and getting worse as Connies' past catches up with her. Appeals to everyone.

    11. Great bookFascinating story line. Very different characters. This author gives a wonderful description of the areas in which he is writing about. I want to follow this author.
