The Isle of Man, 1942. Manx born and bred, Bridget Harrison loves the island and knows every inch of it like the back of her hand.
A newly-trained police officer, living in the vibrant and bustling city of London, she thought she had it all. Then World War II strengthened its grip and she found herself posted back to the island - a stark contrast to the exciting streets of the capital. But, tasked with managing Rushen Camp, a women's internment camp where Jews have to rub shoulders with Nazi Germans, she unearths a cauldron of resentment and fear that brings a dangerous war right to the shores of the Island. And then there are the two brothers- one she's adored since childhood who's become a war hero and the other a brave lifeboatman and farmer. Bridget finds she is torn between being the adult she wants to be and the tomboy from her childhood.
