A proud family. Snubbed by aristocratic neighbour Lord Frampton at a coming-of-age ball, Donald Oliver dreams of the day he'll have his vengeance.
A wild daughter.
Laura Oliver, beautiful and tempestuous, falls in love with Giovanni, an Italian ex-prisoner of war, now a humble cook. Disdaining her father's snobbishness - and his wrath - the couple flee to London.
A desperate hope.
Giovanni and Laura arrive in a city that has not yet reawoken after the traumas of war. Facing destitution, only their love for one another and their dream of opening a restaurant business keeps them going.
From Cotswolds farmland to London fish markets, society ballrooms to icy gutters, this is a tale of prejudice and ambition, power and passion, and one couple's struggle to overcome all obstacles and carve out a life of their own.
