A riveting family saga set in Birmingham in the years following World War Two.
Hannah Delaney is a young women with a secret. It is not one that she can share with her large family back home in Ireland, and especially not with her dying sister. Hannah has moved to England to build a better life, and has met and fallen in love with a young soldier. They intend to marry on his next leave, but then comes D-day, and he doesn't return. Hannah is left alone and pregnant.
Surrendering her baby to the nuns is the only option, and Hannah grimly picks up the pieces and goes to work in a Birmingham guesthouse. Common sense tells her to agree to marry sensible Arthur Bradley, but he too has a secret. And secrets will not remain hidden forever . . .
