  • Daffodil Girls is touching, fascinating, sensitively written and, no doubt, required reading for any prospective Army spouse. And for anyone who's ever wondered what goes on in those garrison towns.

    Wendy Holden, The Daily Mail
  • The Daffodil Girls show as much patriotism, courage and public service as the soldiers themselves ... These women are the heroines who cherish their heroes.

  • How touching to hear the inside stories of the ones they left behind - Kitty Dimbleby's poignant book captures the love and heartbreak of Army wives threaded through with courage and enormous humour - wonderful.

  • This is a timely and charmingly told account of the lives of the "force behind the forces" - the families of those brave soldiers who are risking lives and limbs on the front line.

    Chris Patten
  • This is a moving tribute to the wives and families who are left behind when Britain's soldiers go out to fight- the story of their courage in the face of separation, loneliness and fear for those they love. Kitty Dimbleby's message is that war breeds more than one kind of hero worthy of our admiration and support.
