Description

It’s 1944 and Connie is a trainee ‘lumberjill’. She’s been transferred from blitzed Coventry to the Forest of Dean to learn the lumberjack trade as one of the women forming the backbone of Britain’s war effort. She’s nursing a huge secret and running from her tragic past, and will soon have to make a life-changing decision. Women like Connie are finding opportunity and liberty like never before, but in this explosive moment of history everything is changing for women – and nothing is changing. Then, as now, is the price Connie must pay for her freedom too great?
