Book Description

From the author of the bestselling debut THE OPEN DOOR comes a moving and uplifting story about a generation of young people living through World War II.



When war breaks out Annie Webster and her closeknit family find themselves - along with everyone else in the country - thrust into a world of uncertainty, danger and despair. Her brothers join up, her sweetheart Paul becomes a fighter pilot, and Annie, desperate to help, finds herself in the WAAF, where her intelligence and warmth singles her out for a role more daring than she can ever have known.



All the time, the Battle of Britain is raging in the skies above her. The country has never needed its young people more, but will Annie and her loved ones survive its darkest hour?

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant read! 13 Feb. 2015

Great story, characters and historical value. I'm 50 and know about the second world war but this really made me appreciate what it must have been like to actually live through it. Previously I had not chosen the book as I thought it was an "all war book" but not at all, there is loads more going on!
The length of the book is excellent value for money. Would recommend it for anyone who wants to read a feel good book but at the same time maybe learning about historical facts. Excellent book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A story of family life after www11. 8 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A nice family story following on from "wings of the morning" which i enjoyed, but i found " A time of peace"a bit slow & I have never known a family so perfect, which became a bit tedious, there is lots going on & fan's of the Webster family will love to see how they get on after the war the story starts in 1960 with Katie Freeman daughter of Rose & Bill freeman, going to an interview on a local newspaper as a Photographer.

I enjoyed this book, and it reminded me of what it was like during the second war. Not that I will ever forget, but it doesn't hurt to shake up our memories now and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very absorbing read 12 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. My parents lived through this era and so it is of particular interest to read this sort of novel. The writing flows in a very enjoyable way, I am already a third of the way through my next Beryl Matthews novel and will look out for more.
