Abstract:

Scarborough, 1938 - when Jane and Nell are brought together by a chance encounter, they have no idea that their friendship will be tested through the trials of love, hardship and war. Jane, unhappy at home, sees a chance to escape when Nell invites her to visit her family in Lowestoft and hopes that her newfound freedom will bring her the happiness her strict upbringing never allowed. In Lowestoft, Nell's friends, Simon and Ewan, accept Jane as one of their own and welcome her into their world. But, though a strong friendship develops between her and Nell, there remains a secret that Jane can never tell her. The threat of war brings changes for all four of them, however. Simon and his ship are involved in mine sweeping, Ewan joins the RAF and, feeling frustrated at their helplessness, Nell and Jane join the Land Army so that they can do something positive for the war effort while remaining together. But it is only when both girls fall for the same man that the strength of their friendship is truly challenged.
