They are whisked from family life in Woolwich to digs in London; they are transported from a factory and a grocer's shop to the wonderful dining rooms of Lyons, Marble Arch, and they swap their old overalls for the smart uniforms of the Corner House girls.

There are boyfriends, lovers and fianc s, friendship and romance, but as the Second World War becomes increasingly imminent, the future of these men and women seems more and more uncertain.
