Summary

The Second World War has finally come to a close. Birmingham is welcoming home its menfolk, and a new chapter is beginning in Rachel Booker's life. Her husband has returned, and the family that struggled for survival throughout the uncertain war years is now together. But family life settles into a routine, and Rachel, unsatisfied, starts to yearn for more.
Melly, Rachel's eldest daughter, is a child of the war. She grew up in the bombed-out streets of Birmingham and has never known anything other than the hungry ration years and supporting her mother and younger brother, Tommy. But times are changing, and Melly now has a fresh future ahead of her. She's determined to make the most of life, and her greatest wish is to become a nurse.
As the gloom of the 1940s passes by and the promise of the 1950s dawns, a whole new world of opportunity opens up to Rachel and Melly - but with this comes new challenges and tough choices. They will both have to decide whether their loyalties still lie with the family and friends they clung to throughout the war years or if it's time to move on....

not what I was expecting

The illustration on the book leads you to believe nursing is a major part of the story but this is not the case. Never the less liked this gentle story very much and loved the tender portrayal of Tommy.
