Publisher Description

A moving story of love, loss and survival against the odds by bestselling author Victoria Purman. It was never just a man's war...

Melbourne, 1942

War has engulfed Europe and now the Pacific, and Australia is fighting for its future. For spinster Flora Thomas, however, nothing much has changed. Tending to her dull office job, and beloved brother and father as well as knitting socks for the troops leaves her relatively content. Then one day a stranger gives her brother a white feather and Flora's anger propels her out of her safe life and into the vineyards of the idyllic Mildura countryside, a member of the Australian Women's Land Army.

There she meets Betty, a 17-year-old former shop girl keen to do her bit for the war effort and support her beloved, and the unlikely Lilian, a well-to-do Adelaide girl, fleeing her overbearing family and the world's expectations for her.

As the Land Girls are dropped into a new world of close-knit community and backbreaking work, the trio start to find pride in their role. More than that, they find a kind of liberation.

But as the clouds of war darken the horizon, and their fears for loved ones - brothers, husbands, lovers - fighting at the front grow, the Land Girls' hold on their world and their new-found freedoms is fragile.Even if they make it through unscathed, they will not come through unchanged ...
