It is June 1940, and as the bombs fall, the women at home must dig deep . . .


Tucked on the edge of the Lake District lies Mary Vale, a Mother and Baby Home open to unmarried women and their children. But tensions arise when three very different mums-to-be walk through the doors.

Plucky shipyard worker Gracie must overcome her shame when her lover turns out to be married. Newly engaged Diana's fiancé tragically goes missing in action days before the wedding, while isolated and bedraggled Zelda turns heads when she arrives from the ghettos of Germany.

At Mary Vale, unity is key as the bombs keep falling.

But can these very different women put their differences aside to fight a common foe?
