It's 1944, after D-Day. Doodlebugs are the latest threat to war-battered southern England.
Local crook Samuel Golden is still finding ways to exploit people's hardship for his own gain. Heroine Em, who we first met in The Munitions Girls, finds herself caught up in one such scheme while having to deal with her daughter's unexpected pregnancy.
Female friendship; wartime drama; mothers and daughters; and finding a good man in the end - it's all there in this sparkling new saga from Rosie Archer.
