Uprooted from her beloved Great Western Beach, Emma Smith and her family move from Newquay to the Devonshire village of Crapstone. Tragedy strikes when Emma's father suffers a catastrophic breakdown and, in 1939, war becomes a reality. Determined to make a difference to the war effort, Emma chooses to work on canal boats, where she must learn to deal with hard manual labour, a sinking vessel, and buckets instead of toilets. When the war finally ends, Emma's newfound adventurous spirit takes her all over the world: to literary London, where she meets Laurie Lee; to India to film a love story; to France, where she falls helplessly in love. This is the story of an unusual woman determined, against a backdrop of enormous social change, to be a writer, come what may.
