Coronation Day, 1953. In the Somerset village of Sawbridge, young shopkeeper Molly Heywood slips away from the celebrations to her friend's cottage and is shocked to find Cassie is dead and her six-year-old daughter Petal has vanished without a trace. Molly seeks help from George, the village policeman, but no one can find Petal. The only clue is a letter from London, where Cassie once lived. Molly resolves to look for the missing child in the Blitz-ruined East End. She finds friendship with strangers from Cassie's past, and with handsome Charley. But the closer Molly gets to the truth, the more perilous her journey becomes.
