When Annie married Harry, she believed she'd found her happy ever after. He was a kind, steady man who loved her. But as they start their new life together in 1939, war clouds are gathering and London is about to suffer from the Blitz. Harry is an air raid warden, and the terrible sights he witnesses bring back traumatic memories from the First World War. Suddenly Annie is coping, not just with the hardships of war and two little children, but with a husband who seems like a stranger. Kitty had always been so protective of her little brother Harry, ever since he was a boy. Hiding the truth about their father from the world had been the only way to survive. But when she discovers Harry too has a shocking secret, she is torn. Meanwhile Annie wonders why Harry refuses to discuss his life before their marriage and why she has never met his sister Kitty in Newcastle. Will the truth ever come to light?
