2018. Following her father’s death, Liv undertakes to finish his family research. As she investigates the First World War experiences of her great great-grandfather, Walter Landry, she soon finds that it is the women he left behind in Cornwall who capture her imagination, yet they have largely been silenced by history. Liv turns detective, piecing together fragments and shadows, questioning Landry’s mother, wife, daughter and servant, until these women’s voices clamour to tell their stories – comic, tragic, angry. In the process, Liv uncovers a family secret, and begins to learn about her father, her grief, and herself.
