A heart-warming tale set in Liverpool and London during the post-war years, from bestselling author Maureen Lee.

Liverpool, 1945. Three women, firm friends, return home from the war and try to fit back into their old lives after they’ve been demobbed. They’ve been thrown together by the war, and have shared all sorts of good and bad times. Now their old lives seem dull in comparison. But not for long…

The younger women, Maggie and Nell, are both twenty-one and are full of hope and excitement; Iris, on the other hand, is feeling apprehensive about returning to civilian life. At the age of thirty,
her only wish in life is to have a baby, but sadly this wish has yet to come true.

When one of the women falls pregnant, there begins a dramatic sequence of events so far-reaching that the three friends’ lives will become more intricately interwoven than they could ever have imagined.

Over the next quarter of a century, this story of three remarkable – and very different – women unfolds into an uplifting tale of how three ordinary families become extraordinary.
