Synopsis


"I am a fully-fledged twentieth century evangelist ready to lead the universe from darkness to light."


Buxton, Derbyshire, 1913.


Twenty-year-old Vera Brittain is desperate to leave her village and forge her own path.


Against her father's objections, she goes to Oxford University, where she is introduced to aspiring poet Roland Leighton.


But when war breaks out and Roland is conscripted, Vera is determined to keep their romance alive.


Based on the passionate, funny and desperately moving letters of Brittain and her circle, The Quiet Voice explains how the author of Testament of Youth came to be the pacifist voice of a generation.
