Summary

Fleur Bosley didn't believe in love at first sight, at least not until she bumped into Robbie Rodwell on a railway station in the blackout of wartime Britain. Posted to a newly built Lincolnshire airfield, Robbie as a wireless operator on bombers and Fleur as an R/T operator in the watch office, their only escape is to the little cottage in the nearby village where Fleur is billeted with another WAAF, Ruth.

The two girls become good friends, but Ruth, already hurt by the loss of one of the pilots, does not approve of wartime romances. And Ruth is not the only one to disapprove. When Fleur's mother hears Robbie's name she becomes hysterical and bans him from her home.

The young couple are determined to grab their happiness where they can, but is it a kind fate or a cruel one that has brought them together when secrets from the past threaten their future? Away from their families, there is fun and laughter, the aircrews determined to make the most of every day, every minute, but whenever they fly off into the night on a bombing raid, Fleur must keep watch until the early hours praying that Robbie's plane comes back....

Boring, long winded

I bought 2 of Margaret Dickinson’s books together because I had really enjoyed her story before. (Forgive and Forget)Both my purchases were disappointing. By the time I was halfway through I’d lost the will to live! She writes about farming and wartime. It gets really depressing at times. I was born in wartime and heard my mother’s stories so I could relate to that time all the way through there is a ‘secret’. I persevered because of that. It wasn’t worth it!
