Dinah's husband is killed in a flying accident, leaving her with four children to bring up. When she was nineteen and Gilbert was a sort of fairy prince, she had loved him madly, but gradually she had begun to realize that he was not quite so wonderful; despite keeping her eyes firmly shut, her heart knew that something was wrong. And after his death, life is hard, fighting back loneliness and eking out a meagre pension. So when her brother Dan, newly demobbed from the Navy, arrives to whisk them away to the seaside, Dinah can at last find peace - and, when she least expects it, love.
