She must keep her family together…
The war is over and Evie Talbert eagerly awaits the return of her three children from their evacuated homes.

Her son has developed serious behavioural problems and with her daughters, there’s jealousy and a nervous disorder that cannot be explained…

Peace may finally be here, but Evie’s family is in shreds. Now she must rebuild a loving home to achieve the happiness she’s always dreamed of…
