1950, the East End of London. With the war finally behind them, the Ten Bells Street girls are building new lives. Best friends from childhood, the three of them are there for each other through thick and thin, but the struggle isn’t over yet . . .
Of the three best friends, Becky is the only one to remain in the East End. Even though the war is over, she still finds great purpose in her work as a nurse – despite her father’s longing for her to settle down and find a husband to support her.
Now happily married, Rose has escaped the troubles of the city and lives with her husband and son in Essex, slowly building a happier life than the one she has previously known.
And adventurous Bernie has travelled to Israel to join her long-term lover and continue her work as a photographer.
But despite their separation, the girls’ friendship continues to stand strong as they fight for a place in a post-war world.
One way or another, love will pull them through . . .
