    The Villa Rouge follows Morgan Perincall's life, the threads of which though frayed even before the war, begins to unravel once her husband volunteers for service. Bit by bit Morgan's previous life disintegrates keeping pace with the events developing overseas. Abandoned by her husband Cat, Morgan is left alone in London with her two children. After the children are evacuated into the country the only place Morgan can seek shelter is her childhood home The Villa Rouge, with her father, overly affectionate, war obsessed younger brother and their disagreeable housekeeper. Morgan developed a bit of a reputation for herself when she was a young girl, her marriage and move to London provided an escape from that and she worries that it will return to haunt her when the only distraction from the pain of being separated from her husband and children and the drudgery of running a household is the newly arrived RAF squadron.
