THE LONDONERS

It is 1939 and Kate Voigt and her father Carl have always been at the heart of Magnolia Square. Then war breaks out and suddenly it feels as though the Voigts – with their German blood – are outcasts in their own community. When Carl is interned, Kate’s only support comes from her best friend Carrie, and her sweetheart Toby, who is a pilot in the RAF. But when Toby is killed, and Carrie suddenly turns against her, Kate finds herself pregnant and very much alone. Late one Christmas Eve she is approached by a wounded sailor looking for lodgings. Like Kate, Leon Emmerson is a lonely misfit and they strike up a rapport. But as their friendship and the war develop, and Kate experiences one traumatic event after another, she wonders if she will ever be a part of Magnolia Square again.

CORONATION SUMMER

It is summer 1953 and the friends and neighbours of Magnolia Square are looking forward to celebrating the Coronation. The war is a distant memory and the future seems rosy. Kate Emmerson is proud of her growing family, which includes Matthew, whose father was killed in the war. Matthew’s wealthy relations have never forgiven Kate for marrying Leon, a West Indian Thames lighterman, and when Matthew runs away from his smart boarding school, tensions between the two families come to a head. Meanwhile Zac, the handsome new signing at the local boxing club, is being eyed hopefully by the young women of the square, but has eyes only for Carrie Collins, whose husband, Danny, is more interested in the boxing club and his market stall than in her. In the weeks leading up to the Coronation, Magnolia Square is once again the centre of conflict and drama.
