Troubled Waters

“Troubled Waters” tells the story of a government scheme during World War II that recruited young girls to crew boats carrying goods on canals while men were fighting at the front. The book follows Margaret Cornish’s experiences as one of the select few women known as “Idle Women”.

This book sheds light on a forgotten aspect of World War 2, namely life on the canals at that time and the specific wartime efforts involved. Margaret is highly engaging, making for an enjoyable read.
