Diary of an Ordinary Woman
What was it like to be a woman in the twentieth century? What was it like to live through two world wars?
This is a great way for men and women to understand what our mothers and grandmothers have lived through.
It is an extraordinary act of empathy by Margaret Forster to write this book because it is fictional, but reads as if it is extracted from a real diary. We live with the "ordinary woman" from a young girl through to old age.
