Helen Conroy is happily married with two teenage children and a husband she adores, when war is declared. Despite the bombing of two homes, she holds her family together and takes them back to her father's house, in a Dorset village. She is shattered when her husband asks her for a divorce. Then, in September, 1942, US troops pour into Mowbray. For the Brits, life will never be the same again. The GIs bring hope and fun along with their cigarettes, chewing gum and nylons. But everyone knows that these young men will soon be part of the greatest military invasion the world had ever seen, and that many of them will die so, Brits and GIs alike, live and love for the moment. Captain Simon Johnson, a US military intelligence agent, is billeted with the Conroy family. Despite their reluctance, Helen and Simon fall deeply in love, Months later, when US forces leave swiftly and silently in the night, Helen and her daughter, now a war bride, cling together as they listen to daily bulletins of the invasion of Normandy -
