Hitler’s war is reaching out to affect every member of the Neyler family.
Val Neyler, driving an ambulance through the blazing heart of London, is in an impossible position, for the man she loves is a fighter pilot with the Luftwaffe. And Jenny, whose husband, Simon, is flying Spitfires, finds herself working as a landgirl on a Devon farm. Cara, by contrast, develops her social life, and Maude, in the WAAF, falls in love with two men at once…. And Tina, matriarch of the family, loves them all, scolds them all and tries to understand the new generation growing up in the troubled times of war.
