Sydney, present day. Anna is released into the world after eight years in prison. The entirety of her possessions stuffed into a single plastic bag. The trauma of her past, a much heavier burden to carry. Feeling hopeless, isolated and deeply lonely, Anna attends an alternative support group; The Women squo;s Circle. But when she touches an ancient crystal, Anna connects to a woman she has never met, in a past she doesnasquo;t recognise.
In 1770, a brutal regime torments the English village of Quarrendon and is determined to keep its women apart. Young villager Aisleen desperately seeks a way to defy the rules, reunite with her sister, and live life on her own terms, without her husbandhsquo;s permission. The stakes are high and terror of punishment inescapable, but doing nothing comes at an even steeper price...
While separated by generations, Anna finds herself drawn to the spine-chilling and courageous plight of Aisleen and Quarrendonisquo;s women. Can their bond help her to face her past and embrace her second chance at life?
A heart-warming and inspirational portrayal of inner strength and vulnerability, The Womenisquo;s Circle shows us the true power of female friendship in all its forms.
