In the spring of 1916 Sheffield as WWI raged across the pond, Ivy Jenkins 18, dreams of becoming a professional violinist. She is both beautiful and talented but for now she’s stuck working as a seamstress for the Ministry of Defence with her mother and her grumpy sister Beatrice. Her Dad is the preacher at the local Wesleyan Methodist church and even though they have a lovely little home filled with love she is ready to leave the nest.

This is the road in Sheffield where she lives: number 47 Melrose in Burngreave, right next to the cemetery.

Ivy is a bit of a suffragette and hides her brother Ted’s bike along the cemetery wall. She rides it to orchestra practise not sure her parents would approve.

The things that happen in the cemetery are beyond belief.
