Continuing the story begun in The Broken Bough ...It is 1924 and twenty-one-year-old Peg Hallam has come to London from rural Dorset to carve a career for herself in the busy world of Fleet Street journalism. She is sharing a flat with her eldest sister, Verity, a hospital nursing sister, who is determined to protect her young charge from the temptations offered by the big city. But Peg is pretty, spirited and adventurous, a firm adherent of feminism, divided by her loyalty to her family and their strict conventional morality, and a yearning to experience all that the vast and exciting metropolis has to offer.Despite trying to guide her younger sister, Verity, who has always stuck to her strict principles of morality, is nevertheless tempted into an illicit affair of her own, which only momentarily gives her great happiness. Addie, meanwhile, having embarked on a disastrous marriage, looks for release through her natural daughter, who she had been forced to abandon at birth. Cathy, the matriarch, has her own marital problems to deal with which she struggles to put aside in her loyal support for her children as they cope with the stresses of their own lives.This compelling story provides a fascinating glimpse into not only the moral, political and social attitudes towards women, but also the mounting political tensions between the European countries in the inter war years.
