This is a beautiful and thought provoking story set in war time in England and some other countries that the army is stationed at. The story has 4 main characters . Mary, Tom , Zack , and Alistair. Mary is a young woman who throws away her well organised ladylike life the day war is declared so she can help with the war in anyway she can. Zack is a young black boy who she comes across who needs her help. The interaction with these two characters is very touching and at times made me emotional .
Alistair and Tom are Mary's love interests in the story and we see the ups and downs of their individual lives ( army and education ) as well as their relationship with Mary. Mary is a wilful , good human who likes to make things good for everyone that she has any kind of relationship with making her a likeable character who you would want to be friends with . The story , like most war stories can be sad at times yet beautiful as you see how important enjoying every
minute was as you just never knew when a bomb would hit. If you enjoy books about ordinary people during war time then this book will be perfect for you.
