May 1941 – and the people of April Grove in Portsmouth are beginning to feel the war will never end. Families are being torn apart, not only by the separations and the loss of war, but by more unexpected frictions as wives and daughters play new and independent roles, and children are forced to grow up too fast
While Betty faces conflict at home over her love
for the pacifist Dennis, Carol's bid to escape her carping
mother has far-reaching consequences; and Micky, at odds
with authority and yearning to be a hero, nearly

the families of April Grove learn to endure - and even
to keep smiling through.
