About & Ticket Info
It was never just a man's war...
In the 1940s, thousands of women set off for rural Australia to keep the country running while the men were at war. They worked as farm labourers, doing backbreaking work and winning respect in their new communities.
The Land Girls is the story of three women in the Australian Women's Land Army, as they embrace their new lives, find pride in their roles and enjoy a kind of liberation. For Flora, new friendships and the singular joy derived from working the land offer new meaning to her life - and even the possibility of love.
A moving historical novel, The Land Girls is a story of love, loss and survival against the odds.
Victoria's previous bestseller, The Last of the Bonegilla Girls, was about strong female ties and family, secrets and lies, set in multicultural Australia of the 1950s.
