Three very different women work together at Cadbury's Bournville factory, and their lives become entwined by war and work - and a child called David. Edie, the main character, marries young to escape her unhappy family home. Widowed at 19 and having lost her child, she faces the war grieving and lonely.

Then, one night during the Blitz, an infant mysteriously abandoned during the bombing is handed into her care. Ruby, meanwhile, doesn't want to be left behind in the wedding stakes and settles for marriage with Frank. Finally, there's Janet, kind-hearted and susceptible to male charm, who is hurt desperately by an affair with a married man.

David steals Edie's heart as she brings him up through a time none of them will ever forget. And when David is old enough to wonder who he really is, he leads Edie through struggle and heartache to a life and love she would never have dreamed of.
