Beginning in rural England in the spring of 1916, England has been at war with the Germans for two years. James has just left for France, leaving his mother, grandfather, two younger sisters and brothers to take care of the farm. The work is too much for the women alone, Mary is unwell, Luke is just a baby and Robert is too young to be of any real help. Leaving the bulk of the work up to sixteen year old Charlotte and her younger sister Lucy and their grandfather.
