Description

Twistleton is a village untouched by time, taking its rhythms from the countryside around. Daisy, Jean, Freddie and their friends Aurelia and Laura are devoted to the place, so that when war breaks out Twistleton becomes the embodiment of everything for which they are fighting. For the previous generation the new conflict causes private despair, increased when Twistleton is requisitioned by the Army. Turfed out of their houses, the villagers take refuge at the Hall. It is here that evacuees from the East End, butler and countryman band together to fight common enemies, whether drunken troops in the village, the bombs from the air, or rationing and the bitter weather. Many of the women are forced to leave Twistleton to work in factories or hospitals, but whether walking behind a plough or nursing some injured airman, they all know only victory will do. With death haunting their every moment, love is their one all-too-fleeting consolation -- and also their final triumph.
