It is ten years after the end of the Second World War, and Mary Alderbrook – known to family and friends as Ming – feels life is passing her by. Though her sisters are all happily married and settled, Ming shies away from commitment and the attentions of Mark Sudley make her feel uneasy. Is it friendship she wants from him – or something deeper?
