The girls who took over the work that men had done – and did it all

A historical novel about the girls who joined the Australian Women’s Land Army in World War 2.

When Hilly volunteers for the Australian Women’s Land Army in 1942, she’s sixteen years old.

She expects to be picking sun-kissed peaches and bottle-feeding fluffy white lambs. While wearing flattering shorts.

Nobody’s told her about crutching sheep, 4am starts and randy farmers.

Life on the farm’s hard – until Hilly meets the other Land Army girls.
