After four years as a military nurse, Charlotte Brown is ready to leave behind the devastation of the Great War. The daughter of a vicar, she has always been determined to dedicate her life to helping others. Moving to busy Liverpool, she throws herself into her work with those most in need, only tearing herself away for the lively dinners she enjoys with the women at her boarding house. Just as Charlotte begins to settle into her new circumstances, two messages arrive that will change her life. One is from a radical young newspaper editor who offers her a chance to speak out for those who cannot. The other pulls her back to her past, and to a man she has tried, and failed to forget. AS Britain seethes with unrest and postwar euphoria flattens into bitter disappointment, Charlotte must confront long-held insecurities to find her true voice...and the courage to decide if the life she has created is the one she truly wants.

Mr and Mrs Paxton's daughter Alice was born in the Old Man's house on a night in early spring, shortly after Anthony Edem has pronounced on the Suez crisis. The Old Man didn't want to know of the new world being born outside his great house, of the collapse of belief, the search for equality, of these young men with black leather jackets and badger faces. As the tramp of boots was heard on the road from Aldermaston the Old Man retired to his room of treasures; it was only when Alice fell for the first time that he even acknowledged her existence.The sixties came to the house on the downs, and a feeling of uncertainty was everywhere. Only Alice, growing up, flamingo legs flying under her short skirts, knew where she was going. An only Mrs Paxton knew what would happen when her daughter fell for the last time...
