Five Days in November, 1920. As the people of London await the arrival of the Unknown Soldier from France, three women are dealing with loss in their own way: Hettie, who dances for sixpence a waltz at the Hammersmith Palais; Evelyn, who toils at a lowly job in the Pensions Office; and Ada, a housewife who is beset by visions of her dead son. One day a young man comes to Ada’s door. He carries with him a wartime mystery that will bind these women together, and will both mend and tear their hearts.

Remembrance Day 1920: A wartime secret connects three women’s lives:

Hettie whose wounded brother won’t speak.

Evelyn who still grieves for her lost lover.

And Ada, who has never received an official letter about her son’s death, and is still waiting for him to come home.
