Determined to contribute to the war effort, eighteen-year-old Connie runs away from home to work as a carpenter’s apprentice in Scarborough.

Though life on the workshop floor is tough, Connie finds comfort in the friendship of her glamorous flatmate, Valentine. But when Valentine disappears one night, Connie doesn’t know where to turn. With the war raging the police won’t investigate, and so Connie must take matters into her own hands.

How far will she go to discover the truth of Valentine’s disappearance? And what terrible secrets will she uncover along the way?
