Jean Fullerton, queen of the saga, returns with a charming new war-time series. It's 1939, and the Brogan family of London's East End are ready to show Hitler what-for. But things don't seem so rosy when rationing, evacuation, and air-raids start to put this larger-than-life family to the test. When a mysterious young man arrives at the Brogan's local parish church, he provides just the dazzling distraction they need—and for eldest daughter Mattie, the promise of more than she'd ever wished for. But as the pair fall deeper in love, they are drawn into secret dangers, rife on the very London streets they call home. The young couple must do all they can to protect life as they know it. But will their dreams be able to survive the nightmare of wartime?
