Set during the years of the First World War, One Bright Morning focuses on the story of Ann Owen. We first meet her as a young woman during her last days at college, before embarking on a new career as a teacher. Despite a tentative start, she finds love with Richard Edmwnd, a fellow student. But their love is not without its difficulties. Ann can see those around her suffer in this era of economic deprivation and general hardship, and is distressed by the effect of this lack of opportunity on her own family, particularly her younger brother Bobi. Her personal worries put some strain on her relationship with Edmwnd, but, love conquers all, and the novel ends on a hopeful note, looking in anticipation towards the future.
