August 1914. Twelve-year-old Mattie and her little sister Evie lead an idyllic life in the Suffolk countryside, playing in the meadows and picking watercress in the streams. Living with their family in Plough Cottage, little do they know that this perfect childhood will soon come to an end with the start of the First World War. As the years pass the girls go on to live very different lives. Mattie travels from Suffolk to Plymouth and then to Canada and America, whilst Evie remains in England and pursues her career. But through marriages, deaths, births, war, heartbreak and distance, their bond remains strong. More than fifty years later, will the two sisters finally be re-united to have their time in the meadows again?
