(Six years after the Great War and life in London's Docklands is a struggle for the close-knit Farmers but they are content with their lot. Except for Cissy. As the eldest daughter Cissy longs to escape the East End to forge a better life for herself. And, when she meets the debonair Langley Makepeace, her dream seems within reach. But torn between Langley and her gentle childhood sweetheart, Eddie Bennet, she is forced to gamble on her future chance of happiness. Could the price of belonging in Langley's brittle, sophisticated world be higher than Cissy ever imagined? Or could it be that, in the end, home is where the heart is?)
