Its 1993. The small seaside town of Kingshaven is looking picture perfect in the spring sunshine. With house prices on the move and summer on its way, there's much to look forward to. Then, suddenly, the peace is shattered by the explosion of ordnance that has lain buried since World War Two. In London, 25-year-old Cat Miller sees the story unfolding on the news; in Rome, 43-year-old Iris Quinn feels the pull of the home she ran away from long ago; in Kingshaven, uncomfortable memories are triggered for nonagenarian Liliana King. As the secrets of the past begin to unravel, three generations of women try to make sense of their lives as they struggle to find future happiness at the dawn of a new century.
