In this second volume of Mary Hocking's excellent trilogy, England joins the world in its march to war, sweeping along the members of the Fairley household, their relations and friends.It is 1939, and great changes come running to meet them all, snatching at their innocence and steadfast convictions and tossing them far away. Alice, Ben and Guy…

The women found within cabin 8 have been forced together despite their differences. We meet Kerren, an Irish girl who starts her story swept away with the romance of war-time; Beatie, confident and unafraid; Jessie insecure and unsure of her place with the other girls; Robin, immaculate and standoffish and the other, changing inhabitants of cabin 8.

As each woman interacts with the war in her own, unique way, we build up a picture of the real life of wartime Britain through the people who lived through it.
