Southampton 1920. Phoebe Collins rose to the challenge of running the family fruit and vegetable stall in Kingsland Market after her father did not return from fighting at the Front. The work outside in all weathers can be hard and there are rough characters to avoid, but with her mother and younger brother Tim to support, she is determined that it continue to be a success. Thankfully there are friends like fellow stallholder Marj, and the handsome Ben, to make the long days easier to bear.
But when Phoebe finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time and witnesses something terrible, she will need all her strength to face the trials ahead and the fear that her loved ones may come to harm.
