1945. Nurse Sarah Thane has already lost her brother and boyfriend to the war. Dare she love again?
Sarah is a staff nurse at St Martha’s in London, doing her best to cope with hospital life while Hitler’s V2 rockets cause death and destruction around her.
Captain Charles Bradley is on sick leave when a disaster means his old hospital colleagues need his help more than ever before.
Sarah grows close to the handsome and kind captain. As her feelings deepen, she wonders if she can fall in love, and risk loss and heartache, again.
The staff and patients of Alex Ward remain brave and good-humoured as they face an uncertain future. They, along with Sarah and Charles, can only hope for an end to the war, and for the lights of London to be turned on once again.
