Abstract:

"In 1938, Kate Munroe is only 16 years-old when she is sent away to live in Birmingham with her friend Susie far away from her family in Ireland. Her parents have always doted on her siblings, Sally and James, leaving no time for her. Alone and vulnerable, Kate is harbouring a dark secret - a deep passion for her cousin, Tim, back home in Ireland, feelings she must suppress in the deeply staunch Irish-Catholic community - even if they are reciprocated. Burying herself in her job at the factory, Kate is shocked when her younger sister, Sally, arrives unannounced on her doorstep. What has her headstrong sister done to upset their formidable mother this time? Meanwhile, Kate has met David, an RAF pilot, but can she ever love him like Tim? When WWII breaks out, the girls all volunteer as Air Raid Protection Volunteers. But while the war wages all around them, Kate makes a discovery that rocks her to her very core and causes her to question everything she knows. Not just about herself, but about her nearest and dearest too..."--Publisher description.
