However, as well as caring for his young son Billy and his wife after the birth of their new baby, he soon finds himself drawn into resolving the financial difficulties in which Lucy's brothers find themselves. And when he does manage to steal some hours at his writing desk, he finds himself again at the battlegrounds of the First World War. Will he ever be able to put those terrible years behind him, the awful sights of the Somme, and the subsequent death of his beloved first wife, Barley, and make his name as a writer?
