When We Fall

by Carolyn Kirby

When We Fall Synopsis

In England, 1943, British pilot Vee Katchatourian is determined to get her flying Wings, in spite of her sex and foreign name. Meanwhile, in Occupied Poland, Ewa Hartman serves German officers in her father's guest house, while secretly gathering intelligence for the resistance. What neither woman knows is that they are in love with the same man... Stefan Bergel is haunted by a choice he made whilst held in Russian captivity. Now, he's one of the only surviving witnesses of an appalling war crime - a crime that risks going unpunished. Compelled to expose the truth, Stefan asks both women to take enormous risks for him. Their actions could completely change the course of the war... but is he asking too much?

When We Fall Press Reviews

'A poignant story of love, betrayal and impossible moral choices' - Nick Rennison, Sunday Times 'A terrific World War II novel, which deals with complicated matters of love and loyalty when lives are at stake and choices are bleak...

Highly recommended' - Roger Moorhouse 'In a story where loyalties are called into question, she kept me guessing to the final page' - Anita Frank, author of The Lost Ones
