The story spans two eras at the same location; Mason's Farm somewhere to the west of Newbury in 1940, and again in the summer of 1996. Into this world arrives a group of Land Army girls 'digging for victory' during the Second World War. Fifty years later their grand-daughters, students at the local college, become involved in the road protest of the late nineties. Both groups of young women defend the land in their own way and the past and present blend and bleed as both stories plunge into resonant crisis. Funny, poetic, moving and tragic this story also has another eloquent character, the extraordinary and patient landscape of West Berkshire itself.
