Nell is just eighteen when war broke out , and she’s keen to do her bit, which means leaving her safe office job and starting to train as an auxiliary nurse.This will bring her into contact with women of all ages and from very different parts of society - and it will also bring her face to face with the grim realities of war. But she has a secret to comfort her: a soldier she’s met and fallen in love with, who’s promised to return to marry her.

Then the unthinkable happens: bombs fall on York. And for Nell, this coincides with a dreadful tragedy that she can share with nobody. As she witnesses the destruction of all she holds dear, she must draw on all her resolve to carry on, overcoming her hidden sorrow. But she never forgets, and she never gives up hope that one day things will be right again.
