Now the war is over, is happiness within their reach?
Two women are given opportunities for a positive future, but must choose between following their heads or their hearts.
Patsy Doyle is glad of her new job as a live-in maid in for David Tanner and his wife, but the constant rows between the spouses make it difficult to settle. Patsy becomes an unwilling confidante – and keeper of more secrets than she'd care to know.
Joy Kirk is busy planning her wedding. Since her first love was killed in the Great War, she has accepted that she'd never fall in love again. Now, having spent many years working as Robbie Bennett's housekeeper, she finally accepts his proposal of marriage. She soon realises she has let herself in for more than she bargained for.
Both Joy and Patsy will face unexpected fortunes. But will they ultimately find happiness?
