Winter 1919, Two months after the Armistice that ended the Great War, and life in London's East End is returning to normal. But for Birdie Connor the battle is only just beginning. Frank, Birdie's older brother, has been sent to prison for deserting his army post whilst fighting in Belgium. Wilfred, Birdie's widowed father, has disowned Frank and vows that he will never set eyes on his son again, but Birdie cannot believe her brother is guilty. With the help of handsome Harry Chambers, will Birdie be able to find the proof that Frank needs to reconcile him to their frail father before it is too late?
