Written by Charlotte O’Leary

One house, One kitchen, One woman, Two world wars.

In 1916 Beattie is ahead of her time. A well read, bombastic adolescent with a promising future and a talent for writing. At sweet 16, Billy Glover is Beattie’s first love. They live in letters sent across the battlefield. Over twenty years later, Beattie, like the rest of Britain, finds herself in another war. Only this time she’s got a failing marriage to Royston and an aging mother to contend with.
Living in memories, amidst the bombing, rationing and village gossip can Beattie survive and finally put Billy to rest?

A modern classic based on original letters from the Battle of the Somme and the true story of one remarkable woman. ‘If I should Fall’ investigates the roles of women and explores what it means to be at war; at home and away, then and now, asking the question ... ‘have we changed at all?’
