This is the second of a five part chronicle, telling the story of several individuals and their families through the Second World War.
After the French surrender and the evacuation from Dunkirk, as the war progresses into the summer and winter of 1940, ‘Change’ continues the stories of several individuals and their families:
Joe Price: Captured by the Germans, Joe faces the hardships of a Prisoner of War camp, where he meets new friends but worries about those he’s left behind.
Peggy Cooper: Uncertain as to Joe’s whereabouts, Peggy continues to nurse the wounded, while befriending a student doctor, Chris.
Louis Servier: Having escaped the Germans and returned home, Louis is desperate to thwart the Germans and risks everything in his pursuit of revenge.
Brigitte Fabron: Torn between her love for Louis and her desire for the powerful German, Rolf Keller, Brigitte makes her choice and lives to regret it.
Marcel Servier: From training in England to fighting in North Africa, Marcel’s world is turned upside down, not by the war, but by the arrival of a simple letter.
Olive Cooper: Facing blackmail and ruin, Olive takes drastic action and thinks she’s overcome her worst foes, only to find a worse fate awaits her.
Pamela Lloyd-Smythe: Bored with her mundane roles in the war effort, Pam takes a chance and finds not only an exciting and dangerous position, but also love.
Having coped with the initial hardships of separation, the war now brings change – sometimes for the better, as new friendships are formed and loves established; and sometimes for the worse, as risks are taken and lives endangered.
