The War is over at last and in Plymouth and Portsmouth, two of Britain's greatest seaports, the task of rebuilding must begin. But it is not only streets, businesses, and homes that have been laid waste. Lives, too, have been devastated. Marriages have been disrupted, family life shattered, and now the inhabitants must find their own way back to normality--if they can remember what that is. Lucy Pengelly is just one woman whose life has been torn apart by the War. What will happen when her husband returns from the POW camp in the Far East? And what of the growing friendship between Lucy and her friend David, who played such an important part in their lives during the Blitz?
