For as long as Briony can remember, she has been soft on the boy next door, Ernie, but her best friend Ruth has feelings for him too. When the Luftwaffe begin their bombing campaign of the Midlands, Ernie is called up to serve, as is her father, and Briony's world is torn apart. Lois's family disowned her when she met Briony's father, but when the wartime evacuees need a safe home - Lois's parents open their doors. The three Valentine children are dispatched to Cornwall - far from the bombs and far from the only world they've ever known. Will the Valentine family ever unite and will Briony ever see Ernie again?
