Summary, etc.:
Liverpool, 1945. As the war draws to a close, Alice and Terry Lomax are building a new life with their young daughter Cathy. After years away fighting, Terry is a stranger to his daughter and must work hard to win her trust and love. Alice and old friend Sadie work in the haberdashery of Lewis's department store, where bomb damage scars the walls and rationing is still in force. Yet Lewis's remains open, a sign of strength in the midst of Liverpool's post-war ruins. Though memories of those lost in the war are fresh, Alice and Sadie look forward to the future. But then a tragic accident leaves Alice a widow, and the father of Sadie's child - a man she hoped never to see again - is back in Liverpool. With Alice struggling to start again alone, and Sadie desperate to protect her son, can these two shop girls overcome their troubles and keep their hopes alive - even with all the odds against them?
