I enjoyed the Land Girls primarily due to its glimpse of girls/women during WWII. With the men away at war, and England cut off from supplies from other countries, women were the only "chance" for England itself to survive. They were essential in the factories and on the farms. They kept the country going, and in doing so, forged a new way of life for women. Women realized they were capable human beings. They basked in their new found abilities and the knowledge that England needed them for the same reasons she had needed its men. The war changed the world in many ways, perhaps most crutially by what it did for women. Whether these changes were for the good of all people is open to interpretation. But there is nothing like learning you are a strong and capable person, and for me, that is what was best portrayed in this story. I did not care for the ending, though. I felt it didn't make sense in relation to the rest of the story. It seemed contrived and forced, and that is why I could not give it more stars.
It's so easy
Prue, the would-be movie star who wears lipstick and chiffon while shoveling manure. Stella, the dreamy romantic who discovers that the photograph of her naval officer boyfriend is more exciting than the real thing. Bookish Ag, yearning for the love of her Oxford professor -- yet not immune to the attractions of the strapping farmer's son. These three young women, enlistees in the Women's Land Army in World War II England, leave their comfortable homes to plough fields, herd sheep, and milk cows on a remote farm in the English countryside. With all the young men fighting, the taciturn farm family is forced to accept these "land girls" as hired hands -- and their lives are changed forever by the lively trio. An engaging, memorable story

The descriptions of farm work in this book were clear and entertaining. I am assuming they are accurate, although I have no way of knowing. English countryside descriptions reminded me of Thomas Hardy, which is a compliment to the author.
However, the plot and characters were stereotypes. The long-suffering wife, the over-sexed lower class girl, the unattractive scholarly girl and the lovelorn dreamy girl, not to mention the hardworking farmer and his brooding, handsome son, are all the stuff of romance novels. I never felt close to the girls, believed in their friendship or really cared what happened to them. I got really tired of and repelled by the over-sexed girl's exploits, and the others' whining.
So why did I finish the book? Well, I bought it instead of taking it out of the library, my usual book venue. There was some tension about which girl would get her man. But the ending!! Who could believe that? Ridiculous.

In this 20th Century based novel, �Land Girls� by Angela Huth, the author takes three girls through a life changing experience. Huth takes wealthy city girls Aga, Prue, and Stella to live on a farm. On this farm, these girls have to perform jobs that men would do if they were not at war. WWII is going on and it will take a while for these girls to get adjusted. �This place was horribly old-fashioned, Gloomy, dingy.�(p.10) Everything was terribly different from home, but even though these girls came from different backgrounds, they help each other survive. They are bound to become friends for life. These young girls will encounter love, honor, friendship, and courage through the adventures in this novel.
Angela Huth wrote a great novel in which she is able to put war together with love and friendship. I think that it is a great talent to be able to put all these concepts together in one book. I also like the way the characters were chosen because they are very different, which means that the reader will have fun reading about the different issues these characters will encounter. The change in life styles for these girls is also a big deal that makes the story more interesting because we will see how the girls change from their peaceful lives at home to this farm. All the girls encounter love with a certain boy, which is also interesting because we see how love acts on different people. The best thing in this book is the way the author takes all these characters, which are strangers to each other and take them through many adventures that, will make them become friends for life.
This novel could be recommended to both men and women. To women because the novel is all about how women are able to do as much as men when it comes to hard work. With this novel, women will get the encouragement that we can do man jobs and that we are as good or even better than they are when it comes to inner strength. Because the women in this novel have plenty of inner strength for joining the Women�s Land Army and working for men. Men should read this novel so they can learn to appreciate women. With this novel men will see that women are very hard working who will do many things for them. Men will realize that women are not useless and that they can carry on with or without men. I would not recommend this novel to younger, immature people because it contains some sexuality. �Get your knickers off as fast as you can is my belief, before the poor buggers are shot down. Bit of quick fun, then off to the next one.�(p.180) Overall this novel is very interesting and adventurous; reading it was a very exciting experience.

Land Girls is not "Great Literature", but one doesn't always want to read "Great Literature". It is an excellent and entertaining read with interesting characters using as a setting an aspect of life in England during WW2 which most people know little about.
But since this is an audiobook, I want to recommend Carole Boyd, the narrator. She is absolutely excellent. A poor reader can ruin even the best book; Carole Boyd takes this good book and raises it to the height of listening enjoyment.Highly recommended.
