  • The war might be over, but trying to get life back on track is anything but easy for Alice Watts.

    Follow Alice’s journey back to post-Blitz Bristol where she searches for family, friends, and one particular loved one, in a world where it’s expected to mend and make do… and where it’s sometimes impossible to put your heart before your head…

    A tale of true courage and the power of sheer determination, this un-put-downable post-WWII set saga is filled with warmth, humour and heart-wrenching emotion.

    Perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries, Katie Flynn and Dilly Court.
