It is 1946: the war is over and three young women face a new kind of life. Katie O’Neill’s childhood has been dominated by her temperamental mother. She is easily taken in by male charm and is left outcast and alone with her young son. Emma Brown has spent the war at home in Birmingham, longing for her husband Norm to return and meet the son he has never seen. And Molly Fox, after a brutal childhood, found a place to belong during the war, in the ATS. Now, the women are no longer wanted and Molly finds peacetime a difficult challenge. Finding work in guesthouses and holiday camps, she keeps searching for a place she can call home.
