Bolton, Lancashire: 1943


Livvy knows that her family's survival rests on her shoulders - with her parents gone, it falls to her to support her grandfather, Morris, and younger sister, Joan. Times are tough, largely due to the hardships of war, and Livvy knows that she will struggle to keep her family safe with the meagre pay most jobs would afford her.

When US soldiers are stationed nearby, Livvy decides to take advantage of the opportunity to make some easy and, along with her best friend Vera, begins selling herself on the streets. Despite the harsh judgements of society, Livvy perseveres with her challenging choice and does the very best that she can for her family's sake.

As Joan grows older and wants to explore the freedoms that come with this, Livvy must be careful to hide her unsavoury secret from her family. But when one US soldier takes too much of a shine to her, Livvy's life begins to spiral out of control … will she be able to right things, or will everything she's fought to protect come crumbling down?
