Summary
Orphan Flossy Brown arrives at Trout's garment factory in Bethnal Green amidst the uncertainty of WWII. She is quickly embraced by the colourful mix of characters working there and they fast become the family that she has always longed for. Dolly Doolaney, darling of the East End, and infamous tea lady, gives her a particularly warm welcome and helps Flossy settle into wartime life. When Dolly sets up a sewing circle, the ladies at Trout's play their part in defending the frontline as they arm themselves with their needles and set about stitching their way to victory. But as the full force of the Blitz hits London, the sewing bee are forced to shelter in the underground tube stations on a nightly basis. In such close quarters, can Dolly manage to contain the secret that binds them all?
