Description

This is the story of Muriel Hammond, at twenty living within the suffocating confines of Edwardian middle-class society in Marshington, a Yorkshire village.

A career is forbidden to her. Pretty, but not pretty enough, she fails to achieve the one thing required of her - to find a suitable husband.

Then comes the First World War, a watershed which tragically revolutionises the lives of her generation.

But for Muriel it offers work, friendship, freedom, and one last chance to find a special kind of happiness...
