One teasing look from April Dunbar's golden eyes and David O'Neill is smitten. The two determine to marry as soon as he has qualified as a doctor, but their youthful passion cannot wait, and their wedding takes place to the sound of German bombs raining down on London at the beginning of the Blitz.

April's father, fiercely jealous, is violently opposed to the match, and insists that she remain at home, offering to pay David's medical fees while he continues his studies, evacuated to deepest Surrey. It is not an auspicious start to married life: separated from her husband, the young bride is condemned to spend the long weary years of the war in an atmosphere of repression and emotional sterility.

By contrast, the cheerful warmth and neighbourliness of her East End in-laws come as a revelation to
April, and she determines to provide the same loving environment for her own daughter, Hannah. But David seems inexplicably estranged from his child and - unbeknownst to April - has struck up a very sinister bargain that is to put the family's future happiness at risk...

Movingly portraying the relentless hardship of East End life in the Second World War, and exploring the complexities of the emotional legacies handed down from parent to child, April will delight all fans of Beryl Kingston and Lena Kennedy.
