September 1940. As Luftwaffe bombs rain from the skies over London, the women of Lavender Road are fighting their own battles.
Shy Katy Parsons has always been sheltered by her overprotective parents. Enrolling as a nurse was always her dream, but the reality is tougher than she ever imagined. And falling in love isn't all plain sailing either.
Privileged Louise Rutherford secretly hoped the war would bring her some fun and romance. But so far it has brought her pain and grief, and now she has a secret...something her strict father must never find out about.
London during the Blitz is a dangerous place to live, but the Lavender Road residents never stop believing their sunny day will come.
