The Victory Garden
Thursday, February 27, 2020
Rhys Bowen details the story of headstrong twenty-one-year-old Emily Bryce who is determined to contribute to the war effort as the Great War continues to take its toll. She is convinced by a cheeky and handsome Australian pilot that she can do more, and it is not long before she falls in love with him and accepts his proposal of marriage. When he is sent back to the front, Emily volunteers as a 'land girl,' tending to the neglected grounds of a large Devonshire estate. Tragedy strikes when Emily's lover not only dies a hero but leaves her terrified--and with child. The long-forgotten journals of a medicine woman will teach Emily the power of healing with herbs, and may also open a path to her destiny.
