Like any street in any town, April Grave in
Portsmouth has its good and bad neighbours, its gossip'
scandal and romance, and the laughter and games
of children. But the outbreak of war in
I 939 changes everything'
Young lovers Olive and Derek are parted almost before
they have found each other; long-married Frank and Jess
are changed and divided by a common danger; children like
Wendy and Alan are evacuated to the country', not knowing
when or to what they will return '
April Grove plays out its joys, sorrows and friendships
against the most dramatic of backdrops - one of England's
greatest seaports arming for war - in a wonderful story of
poignancy, nostalgia and charm.
