It’s 1939, and as the country is preparing for the challenging times ahead, the Brogan family of London’s East End is trying to keep their spirits up. But things don’t seem so rosy when rationing, evacuation and air-raids start to put this larger-than-life family to the test. When a mysterious young man arrives in the local community, he provides just the dazzling distraction they need – and for eldest daughter Mattie, the promise of more than she’d ever wished for. But as the pair fall deeper in love, they are drawn into secret dangers, rife on the very London streets they call home.
