The Second World War is over and the troops are coming home in this compelling family saga - but so much has changed . . . The war is over and the soldiers are coming back to the bomb-ravaged East End. Tom Smith is one of the thousands who are returning home.

But life back home wasn't easy either, especially when Jessie's army pension was stopped. So when she was told to put Emma-Rose into a home for her own good, she thought it was best. But how will Tom take the news? There is worse to come, when Tom learns that Jessie's old boyfriend has been helping her during the war. A compelling family saga set in the aftermath of the Second World War, from the author of Time Will Tell and Where Sparrows Nest.
