Her memories as a trainee staff car driver are vivid, her adventures sometimes hair-raising and the friendships she formed, life-long. One of the things that makes this book so engaging is the character of Romie herself. In some ways she seems ahead of her time; more of a feminist than we are sometimes lead to believe of women in the 30s and 40s, up for any experience and all described in a warm and idiosyncratic style. If you are at all interested in the role women (and ordinary soldiers for that matter) played in WW2, this is a recommended read.(Reader review).
