A novel by

 
A moving family drama of one young woman's fight to survive and to find a place to call home

A terrible war and a terrible secret...

Kate Munroe is only 16 years-old when she is sent away to live in Birmingham with her friend Susie. Alone and vulnerable, Kate is harbouring a dark secret - a deep passion for her cousin, Tim, back home in Ireland.

Burying herself in her job at the factory, Kate is shocked when her younger sister, Sally, arrives unannounced on her doorstep. What has her headstrong sister done to upset their formidable mother this time? Meanwhile, Kate has met David, an RAF pilot, but can she ever love him like Tim?

When WWII breaks out, the girls all volunteer as Air Raid Protection Volunteers. But while the war wages all around them, Kate makes a discovery that rocks her to her very core and causes her to question everything she knows. Not just about herself, but about her nearest and dearest too...

A compelling drama from the bestselling author of The Child Left Behind and Keep the Home Fires Burning.
