Ellie has fallen in love with a high-flying City lawyer, but when her heart gets broken thereÂ's not much choice but to decamp from their illicit 5 star love-nest in Primrose Hill to the rather more humdrum confines of her grandad TrevorÂ's house in Clapham.
Finding herself back home isnÂ't all bad. Ellie can always hit the backpacker trail again, or maybe find a job she enjoys enough to stick at ÂÂ– the solicitorÂ's office sheÂ's temping in this time is trying to help people keep their kids, or a roof over their heads, not launch a corporate raid on the City. And itÂ's lovely spending time with Trevor, drinking tea from real china cups, swapping wine tips with her mum, or sorting out her best friend GinaÂ's torrid love life.
But just when it looks like everything is shaping up Â'tickety-booÂ', thereÂ's a knock on the door that turns TrevorÂ's world upside down and takes them all back to the Welsh Valleys in wartimeÂÂ…
