From the bestselling author of the Webster family series comes a moving and uplifting story about a generation of young people living through World War II.

September, 1939.

In the sleepy village of Roehampton, Annie Webster has finally found comfort for herself and her close-knit family, far from the poverty and hardships of their childhood in Bermondsey.

Then, an announcement shatters their newfound peace. England is at war . . .

As her brothers enlist for duty, Annie sacrifices her glamorous job in London for the urgent work of the WAAF, where women of all backgrounds pull together tirelessly for the war effort.

Brave, resourceful and determined to do her bit for her country, Annie quickly catches the eye of a dashing officer, and a daring new role emerges.

But as the war darkens around her and tragedy looms, this spitfire sweetheart will soon learn that hardest task of all is finding peace in her heart . . .
