As the flames of World War I begin to burn, the Stuart family is caught in the middle. Gavin has joined the French Foreign Legion Air Force, and has become an ace piolot. Lylah, now an acclaimed actress, travels to Germany and falls in love with Baron Manfred von Richthofen, her brother Gavin's arch-enemy. Amos and Owen, the two oldest Stuarts, struggle with their own problems - Amos as a foreign news correspondent, and Owen as a prize-fighter turned evangelist turned soldier.
Too many stories told simultaneously make this book rather confusing, and the small amount of time spent on each character makes for sketchy character development. The plot was also rather predictable. But, if you're a die-hard Morris fan, you'll want to read it.
