Abstract
It's 1940 and war has broken out. It is midnight at the turn of the year, and Walter Gabriel speaks the same line that opened the very first radio episode - 'And a Happy New Year to you all!' For Ambridge, a village in the heart of the English countryside, this year will bring change in ways no one was expecting. From the Pargetters at Lower Loxley Manor to the loving, hard-working Archer family at Brookfield Farm, the war will be hard for all of them. And the New Year brings the arrival of evacuees to Ambridge. As the villagers embrace wartime spirit, the families that listeners have loved for generations face an uphill battle to keep their secrets hidden.

Cliffehaven, 1944. Peggy Reilly is enjoying a rare moment alone in the garden of her Beach View Boarding House. Against the now familiar backdrop of squadrons roaring overhead, it seems both impossible that war continues, and yet inconceivable that it will ever come to an end. Meanwhile Ron Reilly is headed to his grandson's send off, ahead of the awaited Allied invasion. But when the celebrations get out of hand, Ron lands himself in hot water with his sweetheart Rosie. As much as Peggy tries to keep the peace, she can't work miracles. With family, friends and her evacuee chicks scattered across the world, the war has forever changed the lives of those she loves.
