This story is a gentle romance that ranks above midway (7/10) of all the stories I have listened to. Set in WWII England the story is about the developing romance between a Bomber Command pilot and a WAAF Section Officer. The drama of the night bombing of Germany contrasting with the quietness of the fishing sub -plot serves to emphasize the difficulties of war time relationships. All-in-all, this is a story suitable for everyone.

I throughly enjoyed this story. Very convincing picture of a developing romance against the backdrop of war and a bomber station, especially given that the war was still ongoing at the timing of this book's publication. Although most of the book was quite slow paced, there were definitely some exciting periods towards the end. I greatly enjoyed what appears to be a personal appearance of the author in his own book! Excellent narration, well suited to Shute's quiet, understated style. I'm so glad that another of my "top 5" Shute favourites has been added to Audible!
