Devastated professionally and emotionally when her fashion house is destroyed in the Blitz, Cressida Westcott is forced to return to her childhood home, Aldhurst Manor. Her niece, Violet, is conscripted into the ATS, which ruins Violet's plans of marrying into the nobility. And the vicar's daughter, Grace Carlisle, hopes to repair her mother's wedding gown for her own upcoming wedding. As these three women, plus others in the village, work together to combat war's privations, class and background cease to matter in this heartwarming story of generosity, self-discovery, and community.
