Wood Green, North London, November 1913: The storm clouds of war gather overhead, while one brave girl fights to save her family . . .

After her mother dies, Livvie Bone knows it's down to her to protect her younger siblings from their drunken father. But life on the worst street in London is dark and dangerous, and one night she needs protection herself. When the mysterious Joe Hunter steps in to help her, Livvie's fascinated by him, in spite of his unsavoury reputation.

Then Livvie is offered the chance to work at the Barratt's Sweet Factory. Livvie's fragile beauty hides a formidable strength of character, and it doesn't take long for the factory manager, Lucas, to notice her. He is a sophisticated, wealthy man of the world and he can open doors to the kind of life Livvie has only dreamed of. Suddenly she has a chance to better herself - and to help her family. But time is running out, for war is approaching, sweeping everything and everyone up in its remorseless path.

What life will Livvie choose - and what kind of world will be left to her when the fighting ends?
