It’s 1943 and Britain is in the midst of a war. Edward Henderson is sailing around the seas, aiding and serving his country in the waters. Rose Jones is an eighteen year old nurse who is stationed in a local hospital and saving those who are admitted. Through a pen pal scheme that was organised during the time, Edward and Rose’s worlds are brought together.
As the months advanced and the autumn started to set in Rose and Edward realise that there is more to their relationship than the letters. Over the three months they have been writing they have fallen in love with each other. But with the war going on will those two people get to meet and finally have a chance of happiness during the hardest of times?
