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.
This is the second of a five part chronicle, telling the story of several individuals and their families through the Second World War.
