This was an enjoyable series about a rural village at the beginning of World War II. It focuses on the women and how war impacted on their lives. The writers must of brainstormed all possible issues for the time period and then decided to write them all into the series. This gives you a diverse bunch of characters facing different problems. I found at the beginning of the series the quick jumping from one character’s story to another annoying, but as the characters grew on me mid-way through the series this did not matter anymore.
The English country village was recreated beautifully for the series and will not disappoint people who love a British historical drama.
