Kathleen Hey spent the war years helping her family run a grocery shop in the Yorkshire town of Dewsbury. From July 1941 to July 1946, she kept a diary for the Mass-Observation project, recording the thoughts of the people who used the shop. What makes Kathleen's account such a vivid and compelling read is the immediacy of her writing. A vibrant addition to our records of the Second World War, the power of her diary lies in its juxtaposition of the everyday and the extraordinary, the homely and the universal, small town life and the wartime upheavals of a nation.
