Victory over Japan has been announced and everyone in Megan Oliphant’s home town in Scotland is celebrating the end of the war.
The boys are 'Coming Home'.
Megan has been waiting desperately for the day when Steven Caraford, the best friend of her older brother, finally returns.
After long correspondence during Steven's time away - and after supporting each other through her brother's death - Megan can only hope her feelings for him are mutual.
Steven has longed for the day when he can return home to Scotland, and – although it will mean long days, little money and no security – his heart’s desire is to have a farm of his own.
But when he sees Megan again, he wonders if he should sacrifice his ambition for a more lucrative career. She is no longer a schoolgirl in plaits - she has grown into a lovely young woman with admirers who could give her far more than he could.
While Megan heads off for college, Steven struggles to build up his new home - and both must try to work out what the other is feeling about their future together.
Will Coming Home be everything Steven had hoped for?
Or will adjusting to life after so long away prove as hard as any of the battles he fought during the war?
‘Coming Home’ is a moving romantic drama about building a new life after the Second World War - and about searching for love, stability and happiness.
