'Follow your own star and when you have achieved your goal you will have that with you for the rest of your life . . .'

It is 1928 and the world is changing. Anyone can see that. Mrs Dixie's dress shop on the high street is selling ladies' trousers and Amelia Earhart lands in the sea off Wales, in an airplane! But when Ida Gaze announces she is leaving the turquoise waters of the town's new lido to swim the treacherous Bristol Channel, with the help of her best friend Frieda, gossips say it can't be done.

It is 1937, and one of the coldest nights of the year. In a redbrick maternity hospital on a grand London square, an orphaned baby is smuggled out under cover of darkness by a young girl.

Years later, an old lady named Cecily searches for the truth to discover how she is linked with two girls from the Roaring Twenties who boarded a train for the Big Smoke looking for adventure in a changing world.

Inspired by the achievements of some of the most extraordinary women of the twentieth century, Wonder Girlsmarks the arrival of a glorious new voice in Catherine Jones.
