Amy Curran and Barney Patterson believed their marriage was made in heaven, but war separated them for five long years, and when Barney returned to Liverpool after VE Day he wasn't the same person - neither was Amy. How could things become so twisted that Amy would kill her adored husband -- and what happened to their little girl, Pearl, just five years old? In 1971 Amy is released from prison and tentatively begins to rebuild her relationship with Pearl, but she is keeping a terrible secret she hopes never to share with her daughter, which has already wrecked more than one life.
