I'm afraid of it!' 'I have to drive the woman and her son to the hospital. Your friend can do it, can't she?' Kay laughed. Look here, do you want to get me chucked out of the service?' She put her hand to Helen's head, to brush back the dusty hair from her brow.

The Second World War saw women fully involved and experiencing work outside the home; the temporary nature of their new role was echoed in the fiction of the era, where the heroine's work remained a prelude to her return to domesticity. Their relative freedom is also reflected in wartime fiction that saw women fulfil a range of roles at one time -mother, worker, home-maker.
