Lizzie is left alone to cope with her new business and her child as London suffers beneath the grip of a savage blitz. Bombs and shortages would be enough for any young woman learning to live after the trauma of being widowed, but Lizzie has an enemy.
Someone seems determined that she should fail in her business - and someone else may want to harm her even more.

Beth's decision to marry may not bring the comfortable happy life she'd hoped. As the two friends battle against the odds, both of them must come to terms with the awful truth and overcome the evil that lurks in the shadows before both can at last find happiness.
