Summary

It is Spring 1944 but for dancer Rose, entertainer Merry, pilot Felix and spy Richard the end of the war is still not in sight. Desperately tired after months living rough with Italian partisans, Richard makes a mistake that results in a devastating tragedy.

Rose, performing for the troops, at last finds a man she feels she can love and is forced to make the most difficult decision of her life.

Merry's lover is returned to him from the jaws of death only to be separated from him again by the demands of duty.

But while the battle rages on they will fight for the future. In war and peace, in joy and despair, life continues - but never as expected.

WWII

An excellent book. The series is one I have read before and the narration could not be bettered
