In 1939 Annie Jarman and her six young daughters were evacuated from their south London home and sent to the Sussex countryside to wait out the war. Refusing to be parted, they faced the unknown together, never imagining just how much their lives would change.
From the trials and tribulations of leaving London, the destructive horror of the Blitz and terrible family tragedy to dances, romances and the triumph of making a new life in the country, The Sisters of Battle Road is the compelling true story of six ordinary girls in extraordinary wartime circumstances.
Today, the six young girls - Mary, Joan, Sheila, Kathleen, Patricia and Ann - are six remarkable women who have lived to tell their tale of sisterhood and its unbreakable bonds in the shadow of World War Two.
