Book Review: Future Homemakers of America by Laura Graham

The Future Homemakers of America should be read by all women stationed or wives of personnel stationed in the UK. The reason for this is that it gives the background information of what the women who were here in 1953 experienced. It follows four women who were living in Norfolk and their lives both on and off base. I feel that those associated with the military will really identify with the women and their families.

I also think that it makes the ones here today appreciate how far England has come in this time as well. It also compares the way the people lived in the base housing provided to them with how the locals were living at the time. It is often still hard today to understand the change that England went through after WWII because America was not affected in the same way.

I think it is a book that you will enjoy and a must read!

All the Best!
