Buffeted by the winds of war. Now they face the tempestuous tides of peace... The story of three women linked by fate and war and the men who loved or hated them. It is 1945 and men and women prepare to return to the lives they left behind in 1939. But the world, for most of them, has changed beyond all recognition. Cathy prepares for the birth of her baby and life without Max. Sarah hugs her children and wonders if and when her brutal husband will seek them out. India, no longer the despot she was in wartime, sees her husband look at her with new and far from approving eyes. David struggles to help men returning from a war he was not allowed to fight, but his longing for Cathy threatens life with his new bride. Will Max and Cathy meet again? Will David find true happiness or will India's scheming continue to work against him? Will Sarah and her children rebuild their lives or must she flee a vengeful husband? All will be revealed in this gripping conclusion to The Winds of War.
