The first in a series of books featuring four young women whose lives will be forever changed by WWII.
It is 1939 and in the town of Dartford, Grace, Sally and twins Daisy and Rose, are determined to do their bit when war is declared. Grace, desperate to get away from her sad home life, signs up for the Land Army. Sally’s dream of stage school is thwarted by the war, but she finds hope in an unexpected place.
For the twins, nothing has prepared them for the shock of the blitz and the nightly raids on their hometown. Rose signs on at the local munitions factory, but with her brothers away fighting, Daisy is needed at home in her father’s greengrocer shop.
When she unwittingly trespasses on a wealthy estate and meets the aristocratic flying ace, Adair, Daisy initially dismisses him as a ‘toff’. But they become friends and Adair encourages Daisy to indulge her passion for aeroplanes. Could Daisy’s dream of being a pilot be closer than she thinks? And in these uncertain times, a girl would have to be crazy to fall in love, wouldn’t she?

About the author
Ruby Jackson and her husband live in a small village in Surrey. Ruby, who worked for an international charity, now writes full time, with a particular interest in how women cope under pressure. When she's not writing she is probably in their large garden coping with weeds.
Wow; I felt like I was in England nearly eighty years ago. A time when England faced her worst danger since Napoleon. This book is about every day ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Living with the privations caused by pure evil and standing up to that evil. The author does not pull punches when she tells of tragic deaths, captures, and missing loved ones. Daisy, the protagonist, is a brave and determined young woman with many talents. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series and encourage you to do the same.
