Synopsis

A British woman recalls coming of age during World War I - Vera, irrepressible, intelligent and free-minded, overcomes the prejudices of her family and hometown to win a scholarship to Oxford. With everything to live for, she falls in love with her brother’s brilliant friend Roland Leighton. But the First World War is looming and as the boys leave for the front Vera realises she cannot sit idly by, so she volunteers as a nurse and sets off for France.
