Time Well Spent: Novel of How Men Prevail
With bombs falling around your house at night, and water getting shut off, what would you do? A good story in the Shute tradition: men and women doing some amazing things to protect those they love and follow the journey of their chosen values. Not the first Shute I've read, but if it was, I'd read more. It's enjoyable reading about common people solving problems and facing moral issues, and good people helping each other.
More in the Rattingan tradition (Separate Tables; the Browning Version) than the Rostand tradition (Cyrano de Bergerac) -- but both are good: benevolent and rational.
