Muddy Boots and Silk Stockings (Paperback)

Synopsis

It is England, 1943. The country is at war with so many men away fighting, it is the women left behind who must keep the country going, and when Alice Todd is abandoned by her husband, she must find a means to provide for herself and her young son. She is offered the job of looking after the group of land girls at Lower Post Stone Farm and soon discovers they each have a story - and some have secrets they'd rather not reveal. The harsh times of war are tempered by the Saturday evening dances in the local hall, but as the hostilities continue, it is clear to Alice that there is more tragedy to follow closer to home. "Muddy Boots and Silk Stockings" is the evocative and compelling story of the sacrifices made during wartime and the indomitable spirit of those left behind, from a writer of the much-loved drama series "The House of Eliott".
