Rosie Price has grown up in the heart of Liverpool’s Italian community. With a father away at sea and a mother more interested in other men than her only daughter, the big-hearted clans are the closes thing Rosie has to a proper family.
But when war breaks out, everything changes. The community is torn in two: friends become enemies, neighbours become traitors and Rosie is left uncertain of who she can trust.
After a devastating bombing leaves her mother dead, Rosie is sent to live with her aunt in Edge Hill – who lets slip a family secret with unimaginable consequences..
Forced to flee the city she loves, Rosie becomes a Land Girls and falls in love – with someone utterly forbidden. As bombs drop and families are ripped apart, can she find happiness or will war stand in her way?
