'She brings the East End to life' Barbara Windsor

In the late summer of 1952, amidst the turmoil of people moving out of their war-damaged homes, Edie Birch and her only child Maggie must say a sad farewell to old friends and neighbours.

A new start is always daunting but helped along by the enthusiasm of her flamboyant Aunt Naomi, new friendships are forged and a brighter life begins for Edie. She even meets a new man.

Outside of her happy orbit, however, a dark secret threatens to destroy her world. Aunt Naomi and her not-so-law-abiding friends must join forces to shield Edie. But can they stop the cruel hand of fate from delivering a blow which could expose the shameful truth?

A compelling and heartbreaking family for fans of Nadine Dorries, Kitty Neale and Katie Flynn.
