The Allies have defeated Hitler, but the daughters of newspaper tycoon Keagan Hayes continue to suffer heartbreaking effects of the war. Cameron, on assignment in Nuremburg, Germany, is celebrating her one-year wedding anniversary--alone. Her husband, Alex, now a well-respected doctor and a war hero, is still not allowed to leave Russia. Blair and Gary are in Washington D.C., where Gary's position in the state department requires Blair to hostess many political dignitaries. Though they are happily married, a deep sorrow overshadows their lives. Jackie, in California, is struggling to cope with widowhood as a single mother to little Emi and continues to feel the fallout of prejudice for having married a Japanese American. Keagan has mellowed, thanks to his granddaughter, and his marriage is better than ever. But Cecilia is hiding a secret that threatens to tear down all they have built together.
