“We learn of their endurance and survival in the harshest of times. We also learn of the good times they had, making the best of a terrible situation. The showed us how to carry on in the face of adversity.”
Extraordinary Women, Extraordinary Times
~ Sherry Pringle

“I read this book in the summer. We were driving along the coast of the Normandie and Bretagne. We visited Juno Beach. There was a non-permanent exhibition about women in World War 2 in the Canadian Museum which is where I bought this book. It was touching, heart-wrenching but also uplifting to read. Sherry Pringle writes about many different women who got little to no recognition for what they did in those times of extreme hardships. These are stories of real-life heroines, each in their own way, shape and form, that have been hidden for far too long.
I was completely mind-boggled at times because of what these women accomplished and frustrated that nobody seemed to care about it. I felt for these women and they seemed to directly tell me their stories.
I can definitely recommend this book and I think many more people should read it.”

More than seven decades since the war ended, one woman decided to dig up the past and bring the stories of world war women to the forefront of history with a book entitled “Extraordinary Women, Extraordinary Times: Canadian Women of WWII.”
