Liz Johnstone took for granted that all families were as stable and loving as her own. She realised some were not when the mother of Keith Watson, whom she had secretly idolised since her schooldays, staged a well-planned disappearance. Then the new neighbours, elegant Eleanor Martin and daughter June, entered Liz's life and work. She glimpsed a sophistication and confidence that was new and exciting in the narrow mid-thirties' life of a ship-building community.
