Follow the lives, loves, highs, and lows of members of the Women's Land Army working at the Hoxley Estate during World War II. As men fought on the battlefields, women from all walks of life worked the farms that fed the nation, doing their part to keep the home front running.
Meet four girls away from home, doing their bit for Britain in the Women's Land Army of WWII. Joyce, Nancy, Annie and Bea join the Land Army officially to help Britain dig for victory, but they each have their own reasons.
Will new girl Connie – young, brash and sexy, with the voice of an angel – cause trouble on the farm? Lady Ellen Hoxley is overrun with Americans when the manor is temporarily commandeered for military planning, and it is one American in particular, wealthy industrialist Jack Gillespie, who charms his way in permanently. Romance, strife and a German on the loose – rural bliss!
Hoxley Manor is transformed into a military hospital, while Lady Hoxley is confronted by a blast from the past. A new arrival at Pasture Farm will change things for the girls, while everyone has their own secrets to keep to themselves.
