One of our Books of the Year 2013 & October 2013 Book of the Month   Set in the Second World War this is a moving and evocative story set in the hot summer of 1940. Having been moved out of London to live with relatives in the country, Peggy and Ernest are keen to do their bit for the war effort – especially because they have their own fights with the local children on account of their father’s pacifism. Ernest has read all the instructions about what to do if the enemy lands and Peggy, too, knows exactly what she should do. But, when Peggy finds a young Polish pilot, wounded after his plan has been shot down, she is torn between following instructions and following her instincts.
