Summary

Johnny Harvey is disillusioned and restless – injured in the war, older than the pilots he trained and disturbed at the changing of society, he watches his friends marry as life seems to pass him by.

Sixteen-year-old Tess Viant, crippled with polio and abandoned by her heartless family, is befriended by Jill Harvey. Jill is delighted to be pregnant after four years of marriage to Tom – but when complications arise, it’s Tess who has to help.

With artist Abbie Rothwell arriving in the village, money turning up in unexpected places and a village play causing tensions all through Hennaford, Tess will have to learn to stand on her own two feet as the drama unfolds…
