From the Sunday Times Bestselling author. In a time of war, what’s holding them together could tear them all apart…
London, 1940. Winnie Berry is at the heart of the community in her pub, The Battersea Tavern. Her door is always open to those in need of a cup of tea and sympathy.
Winnie’s abusive husband has left and she finds herself foolishly falling in love with black market trader, Have it Harry Hampton. But Harry is married and Winnie soon finds herself tied up in his web of secrets.
Meanwhile Winnie’s son is back in London – not to visit his own child, but to charm the latest barmaid at the Battersea Tavern, which will lead to devastating consequences for the family.
With bombs dropping all around them, is it too late for Winnie to uncover the secrets of those closest to her in order to protect her true family?
