It is February 1945 and April Green wonders if the war will ever end. Then the local pub takes a direct hit and her father is killed in the blast. Life without him is hard and April and her brother do all they can to help, particularly when their mother announces she is pregnant. Volunteering to tend her father's allotment, April discovers a passion for growing vegetables. Meanwhile, Winnie Benson is coming to terms with her husband's spinal injuries. He may never walk again and, until their son, George, returns from the Merchant Navy, Winnie must run their greengrocer's on her own.

And, before long, George can't help wishing he was the apple of her eye ...
