Summary
Emily Bryce wants to join the war effort but after the death of her only brother, Emily's parents want her home. When Emily turns 21 she joins the Women's Land Army where "land girls" are taught necessary farming skills while the young men are off fighting in WWI. Emily falls in love with an Australian pilot who is killed in action. Pregnant and alone she volunteers to tend the neglected gardens of a Devonshire estate.
Critique
The "Woman's Land Army" detail was an interesting addition to a great story from a very talented author.
