Summary

In an empty theatre at the end of the pier, the cast of the Fairbourne Follies gathers round the radio to hear war declared on Germany. Four friends are forced to part. Rose must return to her family in London, leaving singer Richard to enlist in the army, with their relationship still unresolved. Asthmatic Merry, the musical director, is destined for the army too, while the charismatic magician Felix chooses the RAF. In terrible danger and struck by the brutality of war, they realise exactly who is most important to them and determine to find each other again, even though the threat of capture, injury, and death is ever present.

Easy to listen to and follow

I quite liked it although it was all a bit nice and fluffy. I think there could have been more of a story and there could have been more opportunities for in depth plots.

A good listen

A good story, the characters grow on you but I did not enjoy the voices put on by the reader, however in the next books this does not happen so don't be put off!
