It is 1947, the worst winter in England since records began, and
even the sea is frozen. For the women living in the little fishing
port of Bexham, the chronic lack of everything from fuel to food
has left them reeling. When Waldo Astley, a handsome young
American, drives through thick Sussex snow into the village in his
large Buick, he finds Bexham filled not only with grumbling
residents, but with frustrated wives and mothers, forced back
behind their stoves after celebrating the victory for which they
fought so hard on the home front.
But Waldo is no ordinary character, and while he has come to Bexham
on a personal mission, his effect on all the residents is truly
electrifying. For Judy, whose marriage to Walter has been badly
affected by long years of separation; for Rusty, whose miscarriage
has been mind-shattering; for Mathilda, whose single motherhood has
put her eligibility in jeopardy; and for Meggie, still not
recovered from her ordeal as a secret agent. For all these women,
Waldo Astley is not just a breath of fresh air--but the wind off
