A novel of love, separation, infidelity and indecision - set in the 1950s and1960s
Clare and Kathy are young, inexperienced and very much in love with their men. But being 'married to the navy' is harder than either of them imagined. With a husband at sea and a new baby to consider, Clare finds herself coping with motherhood alone, and when Martyn returns he is unsure how to deal with her new-found independence. As for Kathy, newly engaged to Brian, temptations come her way which are impossible to ignore.
Even when all their lives seem to be settling into some sort of routine, it seems that their troubles are only just beginning.
