Publisher's Summary

In 1917, while the world is at war, Alma falls pregnant, and her daughter, Molly, is born in secret.

In 1952, Anna enters a Salvation Army home for unmarried mothers, determined to keep her baby.

In 1975, Cathy is living with David, determined not to get married, but when she falls pregnant a new chapter is added to this family story.

Interweaving the intimate lives of three generations of Australian women, this is a tale about secrets, motherhood, adoption and the untold stories that shape us.
