Home as Empire of the Heart in The Home Front Girls by Rosie Goodwin
The paper aims to bring out the best in the three female protagonists during a crisis in the novel The Home Front Girls by Rosie Goodwin. Charles Darwin's concept of "survival of the fittest" is the looking glass through which the lives of the trio are assessed in this paper. The courage, determination and strong will of these women make them overcome seemingly insurmountable circumstances. With the imminent war lurking within and without, living each day becomes an ordeal for all irrespective of class, race and gender. These women prove that all is not lost and that one just needs the grit and perseverance to move on in life, despite the odds.
