The Dear Watsons tells the story of a woman called Gladys, her husband and daughters, her family and friends, of Worcester and Birmingham and a town in between, set against a vivid backdrop of life in the Midlands before and during the Second World War.
In 1929 Harry Watson is offered the chance to run stylish licensed premises in Birmingham’s prestigious Corporation Street. Gladys reluctantly agrees that they should give up their successful Black Country pub, despite her misgivings that the move will destroy them.
Tragedy starts to strike at members of her family and then it reaches Harry and her. It looks as though all the odds are stacked against her, but as the country careers headlong into war, Gladys, with charm and determination, becomes a highly respected businesswoman in a Worcestershire market town and seizes every opportunity that wartime offers to ensure security for herself and her daughters.
