A wonderful World War II saga that is moving and humorous in equal parts, in the backstreets of Liverpool, Eileen Watson lives with her mother, Nellie, daughter Mel, and her three tear-away sons. Life isn't great, but they have each other, and family can get you through anything. Then, on the third day in September 1939, Britain declares war on Germany and their lives change forever. The children have to be evacuated, but daughter Mel refuses to go, and so Eileen says goodbye to her mother and sons, moves away from the street they love and faces a future without most of the people in her precious family. Thus begins a journey for them all. A journey filled with forbidden love, tragedy, and the terrifying sounds of a city they love crumbling into craters left by the Luftwaffe. Their lives will never be the same again.
