With war on the horizon, can she find peace?Grace and Dougie have been courting for years, so when Dougie decides to emigrate to Australia he expects Grace to follow once she turns twenty-one.

Grace used to be besotted with the handsome man, but she is increasingly worried by his bullying behaviour and gambling.

On her way home from seeing Dougie off at the docks, Grace is nearly run down by a truck driven by widower Ben, who is on his way to the hospital to see his young son.

Soon, Grace has agreed to look after Ben's child while he recovers from his accident.

As they spend time together Ben struggles to ignore his growing feelings for Grace.

But Dougie is determined not to let Grace go and when war breaks out he returns to England.

With her old flame to contend with, never mind the relentless German bombers, will ever Grace find peace and love?

From Liverpool's much-loved saga novelist comes a tale of love and heartache in wartime, which fans of Kitty Neale and Katie Flynn will love.
