Lilian Harry's hallmarks of excellent research, dramatic plotlines and characters you really warm to have yet again been superbly portrayed in this romantic saga set during World War Two with the beautiful Devon moors as the backdrop. A thoroughly absorbing read.

Comparison: Margaret Mayhew, Elizabeth Elgin, Beryl Matthews.

If you like Lilian Harry you might also like to read books by Margaret Dickinson, Annie Groves and Rebecca Shaw.

Synopsis

A Song at Twilight by Lilian Harry

It is 1943 and the quiet of Harrowbeer, in Devon, is disrupted by increased activity at the nearly airfield, built at the beginning of the War. Amongst the squadrons moving in are pilots from Britain, Canada and Poland. The airfield, with its noise and its population, has a massive impact on the peaceful villages nearby - an impact that will affect some inhabitants for the rest of their lives.

Alison, married to a pilot and newly pregnant, soon makes friends with the locals, particularly with May, who finds herself caught up in the life of the RAF, watching and waiting as the pilots and crew carry out their dangerous missions.

Then, on the night when Alison's baby is born, her husband is reported missing and Alison and May find themselves facing a dilemma all too familiar to the wives and sweethearts of those who flew the Spitfires, Hurricanes and other aircraft to protect their country during this time of war.
