    Then there is Lillian, who is deeply unimpressed when she is conscripted as a Land Girl miles from her home . But she soon learns to love the rugged landscape, camaraderie and hard work. When her growing friendship with the married vet with a tragic past turns into something more, Lillian faces the ultimate sacrifice.

Daisy Styles grew up in Lancashire, surrounded by a family and community of strong women whose tales she loved to listen to. It was from these women, particularly her vibrant mother and Irish grandmother, that Daisy learned the art of storytelling. There was also the landscape of her childhood - wide, sweeping, empty moors and hills that ran as far as the eye could see - which was a perfect backdrop for a saga, a space big enough and wild enough to stage a drama, one about women's lives during the Second World War.
