But as they start their new life together in 1939, war clouds are gathering and London is about to suffer from the Blitz. Harry is an air raid warden, and the terrible sights he witnesses bring back traumatic memories from the First World War. Suddenly Annie is coping not just with the hardship of war and two little children but with a husband who seems like a stranger. Growing up, Anita always knew there were secrets in her father Harry's past. As a little girl she overheard her formidable Aunt Kitty saying, 'Of course, his family don't know...' only to fall silent when Anita came in the room. And then there were the nightmares that plagued her father, waking him up screaming. As she tries to uncover the truth, she realises Kitty and Harry may have been right to want to leave the past safely buried. Her Father's Daughter is a moving and poignant story about the unbreakable bonds on family, and the power of love to heal the worst wounds.
