Enrolling into the Women's Land Army, Evelyn leaves London to work on Haven Baulk Farm. The work is hard, but life is made easier when she befriends Mabel who has also volunteered and works in a nearby farm. However, Evelyn is transferred to Slade Farm and is embraced by the Davies family and forms a growing bond with the farmer's son Samuel.
