Survival is key in this isolated Yorkshire community. When the men leave to join the allied fight in France, their wives remain to run the farms – with the help of German POWs at a nearby internment camp. Soon, illicit affairs have begun, and in some cases, lust develops into love. But what these women have also discovered is a newfound sense of independence. Sarah Rigg is the midwife and witch doctor at the heart of the village; she holds the power of life and death in her hands. So when the husbands return, brutalized by war, the women turn to Sarah to mix the potions that can save a life… or take it away.
