No matter what life throws at her, she refuses to give up . . .

Tiny, warm-hearted, and totally devoted to her charming rogue of a husband, Lizzie mothers her brood of nephews and nieces through the perils of the war-torn capital. As she struggles to make a home for them in the busy bomb shelters of underground London, she helps launch them on the roller-coaster of life and stands by with help and encouragement.

For Lizzie is a survivor, an irresistible heroine with the unquenchable optimism, the great heart, the indomitable courage that sum up the true spirit of the East End.

Join Lizzie and her family as they negotiate the trials and tribulations of life during the Second World War in this beautifully heartwarming tale of perseverance and fortitude.
