War rages, but the women and children of Liverpool's Dr Barnardo's Home cannot give up hope. What more could you wish for than a poignant, heart-warming saga to read this winter?

LIVERPOOL, 1943
Yorkshire is the place Lana has always called home, but it's now filled with painful memories of her fiance, Dickie, who was killed at sea. When she accepts the challenging position of headmistress at a school in Liverpool, she hopes a new beginning will help to mend her broken heart.

A BATTLE TO FIGHT
Not everyone at Bingham School is happy about her arrival but Lana throws herself into the role, teaching children from the local village and the nearby Dr Barnardo's orphanage. She thrives in her work, but soon finds herself falling for a man who she would once have considered the enemy - and is torn between what she knows is right, and taking a risk that might see her lose everything.

THE STRENGTH TO HOPE
There are children that desperately need her help, and Lana must fight for everyone's happiness, as well as her own. But one young girl in particular shows her that there is a way through the darkness - because even when all seems lost, there is always a glimmer of hope to be found...
