Overview

Fergus is older than Sheila, in the British Army, and fond of his drink, but he loves her and Sheila doesn't hesitate when he proposes, although their marriage will mean leaving Dublin. In November 1961, Sheila finds herself and her twin baby girls with three other young women on their way to join their husbands stationed in Germany. The young women are plunged into a very different life from the ones they have left. They become friends, sharing their worries, secrets, disappointments, and troubles. Elaine Crowley creates a community bound together by the special intimacy that comes when a group of people is thrown together far away from their homes and families.
