Christmas 1917, and as the Lilley family gathers at the Rectory in the Sussex village of Ashden, the mood is far from festive. The war grinds on, new ration measures are introduced and any hope of returning to life as it was before the war dissipates.

When fresh tragedy strikes Ashden itself, devastation reverberates throughout the village. Yet while the New Year brings new challenges, the Rectory opens its doors to a new world, its inhabitants strengthened by the grief and happiness shared during the long years of war.
