"A good story well told." -- Ann Oughton, Historical Novels Review, February 2007
"This is a meticulously researched story that feels like it could have been written back in 1945 ...the language and local colour have an authentic ring and there are echoes of Boys Own-style adventure stories, and even, in places, Nevil Shute’s good old fashioned storytelling." -- Rachel Howells, The Big Issue in the North, November 20, 2006
"Samantha Grosser skilfully weaves a well-crafted, opportunist love story set during the penultimate year of World War II."
-- Joe Spurgeon, Venue magazine, December 1, 2006
"Gripping. A good story well told." Historical Novels Review
England 1944. A chance meeting changes two people’s lives for ever.
Young American pilot Tom Blake isn’t looking for love, but meeting Anna Pilgrim on a winter afternoon changes everything. And so begins a passionate affair.
Their happiness does not last. Shot down over Europe, wounded, in hiding, Tom has no way of telling Anna he is alive. And Anna, left waiting in England, has no way of finding out. How can she know that Tom is struggling to return to her? Or that the thought of her is all that keeps him going on the long journey home?
Interwoven with the danger of Tom’s fight to survive is the story of Anna’s own struggle to face the uncertainty of waiting. Set vividly against the hardship of the Second World War, Another Time and Place is at once a compelling love story, an enthralling adventure and a moving depiction of the resilience of the human spirit.
What readers are saying about Another Time and Place.
“Perfectly blended mix of history and love story.”
“A fast paced plot and a powerful love story.”
“Easy to read, hard to set down.”
“Very emotional and beautiful.”
