Description

In September 1939, housewife and mother Nella Last began a regular diary that lasted for 30 years. The account that she left of life during the Second World War is moving, fascinating, and unique. While Nella's younger son joined the army, she and the rest of the family tried to adapt to the transformed rhythms of life in Barrow-in-Furness, which suffered terribly from enemy bombing raids. Writing each day for the "Mass-Observation" project, Nella's diary entries tell a powerful story about the war years, covering everything from sex to the genuine fear of invasion. This was the period in which Nella reviewed her life and her marriage - which she eventually compared to slavery.

Edited by Richard Broad and Suzie Fleming.
