Powerful, dramatic, deeply moving, both for its love story and for its larger significance, its action is compressed within the space of one tense and critical month in the late summer of 1940.The heroic evacuation of Dunkirk was over and the war had been brought to England—a war in which blackouts and bombing raids had become daily realities.

But it was still new and unnerving to Prue that night when she and Clive lay tensely awake in the darkness of their seaside hotel and heard the German planes come over.It was not new to Clive. He had fought heroically with the rear guard at Dunkirk- and now, to quiet the fears of this girl whom he loved but hardly knew, he told her stories of his childhood in a world which was strange to Prue, a world of harsh reality from which she had been protected all her life. Was that England – an England of privileged castes and undernourished people – worth fighting for? He was tortured by doubts, but Prue knew, in spite of his logic, that Clive was wrong …and in the end he found out for himself the true meaning of war.
