Based on a true story, Not A Day Passes spans a period of nearly sixty years commencing in the midst of the Second World War. This poignant human-interest story creates an emotionally complex tapestry as it explores society's changing attitudes towards women, mental illness, illegitimacy and divorce. 1943 and in Plymouth, Devon, feisty but sheltered Kate Aldworth craves independence from her loving but crushingly conservative parents. In Malta, sultry Dutch nanny Evelien van der Post is living life to the full, despite the ravages of war. Three years later both young women are happily married and living in a foreign land: Kate in America and Evelien in England. Although they will never know each other, their lives become inextricably linked, in the most heart-rending way, when the principled Kate is forced to make an impossible choice; a choice which cannot bring joy to one without bringing utter devastation to the other.
