Bobbie has moved on from the traumas of the past, and is now a senior officer. While she enjoys flying, like the other girls she has an special affection for the well designed Spitfire. She is keen to help organise a Christmas event, a dance, despite the tricky moments she endures at the dance that occurs at the start of the book. She admits to being very fond of Ray, who runs a local racehorse stables. Not that the course of their relationship will run smoothly; decisions will have to be made. Mary is deeply in love with Cameron, and commitment may well be demanded. However, she has other concerns, as she worries about her younger brother who is fighting abroad. Viv, the lively, brave and talented Canadian pilot, is not so committed to a man, but is completely determined to ensure that the Christmas celebrations proceed as planned. Meanwhile, the pilots are flying planes against a background of their own fears, especially as some of their loved ones are flying actual combat missions. As relationships can be made more tense by fear, there are also pressures from family and friends.
This is a book which demands to be read once started, as each of the characters is drawn in a consistent manner as the overall story develops. The research into what it feels like to fly a variety of planes in several different conditions is understated but effective. The emotional pressures on the women and those whom they love is well described, especially in the community of the airfield with the various ground crew and other ranks who are all dedicated to getting the maximum number of planes in the air to help the war effort. This is a powerful book on the bravery of the women and men connected with the airfield, the technical requirements of flying and the desperate hope that the war will soon be over before more losses must be faced. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the vivid depiction of wartime conditions, the lives of women in wartime, and the special circumstances of the final months of the war.
At the Christmas Party .Glad Cameron got back to
Mary . And Giles and Vivienne got together too.
She didn't know if he would or not come to the
Christmas party after she spoke to him the way
She did. But surprised her. And Glad that Bobbie and
Ray were going to make a go of their relationship.
By her inviting him to Scotland to meet her Parents.
It was scary for them when Ridley got Bombed and
Poor Hilary got Injured but would make it. And Rickey
AT A would pick up where they left off.
Yes enjoyed this book very much good ending glad they
All got together and that Peggy got on well with everyone
Too. She certainly helped around the base. .
Yes a real good story and was very thrilling in parts
For Mary and her Brother Tom she found. Was here
And not In Germany. A shock for her. Lots of intrigue
