Katy, maidservant at Cheadle Manor, longs to escape her narrow life. Frustrated by personal tragedy, she joins the WAAC as a mechanic in WW1. Through the horrors of global conflict, she discovers that only love can bring freedom.
Alex Martin is finally fulfilling her dream of seeing her work in print, and loving it. She writes in her Plotting Shed, at the end of her long garden, where there is no internet to distract her, just a view of the Welsh mountains.
