WARTIME GIRLS (2014)

Set in 1933, it is Grand National day and all of Liverpool is alight with the excitement on the racecourse, but there is a tragic accident and Susie Ingram’s fiancé Danny is killed. In another cruel twist of fate Susie discovers she is carrying Danny’s child and, shunned by his parents, she turns to her mother for support.

Louise Ingram, widowed during the First World War, knows how hard it is to bring up a family alone, but with the help of her eldest daughter Martha, who lives next door, they manage to survive. When little Rosie is born there is no doubt that she is Danny’s daughter, but it is destined to take many more years of heartache before the two families are united again.
