An engaging and gripping post-war saga (Take A Break)
Ruby and Jim Searle run a guest house in Worthing, but the newly-weds have had a rocky start to their marriage. Their troubles are only set to get worse when Jim starts to unravel a dark secret from his past.
The guest house is in high demand, and Ruby is asked to take in two German schoolboys on a cultural exchange. She agrees, but when they arrive they seem more like grown men and their activities are far from innocent. The Germans’ arrival is followed by that of two Jewish refugees, and Ruby does as much as she can to help these young girls whilst they’re in her care.
As the country gears up for war, Ruby throws herself into war work as a distraction from her troubles at home. But revelations from Jim’s childhood continue to surface, with devastating consequences. And when war is declared, Ruby’s life is changed forever . . .
