A Ration Book Childhood
In the darkest days on the Blitz, family is more important than ever.
With Ida Brogan's family struggling amidst the nightly bombing raids in London's East End, she is doing her very best to keep their spirits up. The Blitz has hit the Brogans hard, and rationing has begun to bite.
When Ida's oldest friend Ellen returns to town, sick and in dire need of help, it is to Ida that she turns. But Ellen carries a secret, one that threatens not only Ida's marriage, but the entire foundation of the Brogan family.
Can Ida let go of the past and see a way to forgive her friend? And can she overcome her sadness to find a place in her heart for a little boy, one who will need a mother more than ever in these dark times?
