I really enjoyed this book. The transaction was smooth and the product was as advertised. Only thing I would add is that this book is about 1950s wives in Great Britain, not America. This actually turned out to be a good thing because I was able to see how different life was for families in Great Britain during and after the War, how much better off it was in America, how much more freedom from the Government there was. A very revealing discourse.
Great looking back at the 50's.. Although it's written for someone living in England at that time, many of the references will tickle your funnybone in America too.
I loved it'
