Mothers and daughters and the secrets they keep
Mrs. Braithwaite, self-appointed queen of her English village, finds herself dethroned, despised, and dismissed following her husband’s selfish divorce petition. Never deterred, the threat of a family secret being revealed sets her hot-foot to London to find the only person she has left—her clever daughter Betty, who took work there at the first rumbles of war.
But when she arrives, Betty’s landlord, the timid Mr. Norris, informs her that Betty hasn’t been home in days—with the chaos of the London Blitz, there’s no telling what might have befallen her. Aghast, Mrs. Braithwaite, with the reluctant Mr. Norris along as an unwitting sidekick, sets her bullish determination to the task of finding her only daughter.
