On a Wing and a Prayer

(1997)
(The third book in the Lavender Road series)
A novel by

 
'As soon as you open On a Wing and a Prayer you are gripped by an evocative wartime story. Unputdownable!' Western Telegraph

As the war enters its third year, the people in Lavender Road are now pushed to the limit. Everyday life is hard enough in London in 1941, but it becomes much harder when the constant anxiety for loved ones, the demands on courage and the privations of war are added into the mix.
And yet for one person in Lavender Road, Helen de Burrel, the real implications of being at war becomes even more personal when she finds herself volunteering to join the Special Operations Executive. Nobody knows that her cool exterior conceals such courage ... and such fear. But it is 1941, and for her at least, the sense that each day could be her last spurs her on. It also means that love, when it strikes unexpectedly, is doubly dangerous.

'In this dramatic and poignant novel, Helen Carey depicts the courage and resilience of ordinary people caught up in an extraordinary war.'
