Nella Last's War established a housewife and mother from Barrow-in-Furness as one of the most powerful and moving voices of the Second World War, and inspired the award-winning television drama Housewife, 49 (starring Victoria Wood).

In this next installment of her unique diaries, Nella Last describes how ordinary people rebuilt their lives after the war was over. While the Allies' victory was a cause for hope and celebration, much anxiety remained. In her sensitive and playful account of daily life in the austerity years, written like her diaries for the Mass Observation project, Nella Last captures the thoughts and feelings of post-war Britain.

    " What a fantastic book - if you are looking for an insight as to how the ending of the war affected real people then this is the book. Nella keeps a detailed diary but she has a real talent for writing as well so its a very enjoyable read. cant recommend this book highly enough! "

    " Nella is cranky, enjoys sniping about other women & is openly dissatisfied with her husband - entertaining stuff. She also gives minute details of their meals and the continuing food shortages in post war London. "
