It will take more than Hitler's Luftwaffe to break the spirit of the residents of Lavender Road. If courage, resilience and a shared sense of humour could win wars, the conflict would already be over.
It's not all harmony, though. Nurse Molly Coogan and would-be actress Jen Carter certainly don't see eye to eye. Molly, despite hating the strict discipline of wartime hospital life, is unimpressed by flighty Jen's prima donna ways while pretty Jen, unaware of Molly's secret heartache, can't resist taking her own personal frustrations out on Molly.
It's probably just as well that no one knows what challenges lie ahead....
