Successfully blending one man’s fictional story with real life events and related by a flawed and anxious young scientist, this is a complex and gripping tale of weather and war as the right conditions for D-Day is sought.  It’s not as gripping as The Last King of Scotland but it’s certainly as enjoyable.

The Good Book Guide Review

The D-Day landings and the fate of 2.5 million men were dependent on the conditions in the English Channel on just one day, but could the weather be predicted accurately enough to ensure their safe execution? In a mission more eventful than he could have imagined, young meteorologist Henry Meadows is sent to the wilds of Scotland to extract information from scientist Wallace Ryman about his brilliant forecasting formula – the Ryman number. A gripping mixture of tension, excitement and wry humour.
