Their world of middle-class complacency is shattered by war and the arrival of an evacuee called Charlie- a seemingly tough working-class boy from the East End. Charlie brings with him a traumatic background, a perceptive personality and the ability to make people care about him deeply. When Rob has to bale out of his burning Spitfire, his life explodes. In flashback, we meet a kaleidoscope of characters: Kate, his beautiful WAAF girlfriend, searching for love- Colin, his best friend, searching for food and friendship- Billie, a night-club singer, searching for sex- and ten-year-old Charlie- the most disarming character of all, searching for a hero and a home. It is Charlie who forces Rob to face the fear that lurks within us all. Linda M James writes real and touching characters going through exciting, testing times during WWII- if youre interested in the past, youll love this book.
