With the First World War now a ten-year memory, Jim wants a new life for his family. And where better to find it than the Empire and in particular New Zealand, where his brother has long settled.

Dilys doesn't share her husband's dreams. She wants to stay in England, and if not in their cramped and run down back-street pub in Portsmouth, then somewhere else in the city.

At nineteen and under her mother's watchful eye, Ruby is stifled. She wants to live a little. And with the Royal Naval dockyard a street or two away and the town full of sailors, she's spoilt for choice.

Unlike her younger sister, Lilith has little interest in marriage. Or men for that matter. Preparing for her teaching exams and the certificate that will prove her proficiency in the classroom, her passion is politics and the growing movement for female equality.

Two very different sisters with two very different dreams. But within a year their lives will be turned upside down in ways they could never have imagined. And they must find a way to cope.

If you've read Hilary Murray's The Bordello Girl, you will love Ruby and Lilith.
