Spring 1944. As the Allied forces push on towards longed-for victory, Lily Collins yearns to join up and do her bit. But where does her duty lie?
Her best friend Gladys faces having her first baby alone, with her new husband back with the Navy.
And their friend Beryl is run off her feet building her bridal-hire business amid the bomb damage.
So while wedding bells are ringing for others at Marlows Department Store, where Lily works, will they be heard for Lily herself – or does fate have another twist in store?
