Phil Masters is a strong, likeable character popular with his friends and those who meet him. In 1940, he plays a part in the Battle of Britain early in World War II which is to impact on many lives and also interrupts the love affair Phil has with his cousin. When he is shot down, his life is saved by a young 'land army' girl who falls in love with him - however, Phil, in turn, falls in love with his nurse. The unfolding of this drama of wartime bravery, love, sorrow, tenderness, tears and eventual happiness contains so many twists and turns that it must be read to be appreciated. When you start, you will find that the book is so wholly absorbing that you will not be able to put it down.
