As the euphoria of the Armistice fades, the nation counts the cost of war in bankruptcies, unemployment, strikes, shortages, and tax and price rises. Jessie longs for a home of her own, but Bertie cannot get free of the army; Jack is part of the shaky beginnings of civil aviation; Polly persuades her father to send her to New York.; Emma dreads the return to civilian life and becomes one of the Bright Young Things, a generation of unsettled young people who dance to obliterate memory.
