Publisher's Summary

Oscar winning performances contributed to this moving war movie's status as a classic and once again Greer Garson shows why she deserved such an honour. Based in England, the Minivers are a middle class family who are forced to cope with small inconveniences and great tragedies that emerge at the outbreak of World War II. Through all this, their son courts Lady Beldon's granddaughter. Lady Beldon enters her cultivated rose in the village competition and normally wins but this year a rose named Mrs Miniver is entered opposing it. Through this episode we get a clear sense of the class system and the quirks of English life.
