Family and friendship mean everything under the darkening skies of wartime Britain.Daisy Maitland longs to learn to fly. Feisty and a daredevil, she envies her beloved Aunt Pips who faced constant danger in the frontline when she served with Daisy's parents, Robert and Alice, in an independent flying ambulance corps during the Great War. Robert suffered serious injuries risking his life to save the wounded from no-man's-land and returned home to Lincolnshire, believing his career as a doctor had been destroyed. With help, he recovered sufficiently to serve the small village community which, like so many others, had suffered terrible losses. Through the nineteen twenties and thirties everyone struggled to come to terms with the aftermath of the catastrophic war and their hopes lay with the next generation; with Daisy and her cousin, Luke. Pips, married to George, lives in London but during the holidays, Daisy goes to stay with her, for Pips will take her to Brooklands to watch the car racing and to fly. With another war looming, it is Daisy, Luke and their peers who must now face danger in the fight for freedom. Enlisting in the Air Transport Auxiliary to deliver Spitfires to the frontline, Daisy forges new friendships but never forgets her childhood friend and cousin, Luke, who joins the RAF to fly Spitfires in the Battle of Britain. Once again the Maitland and Dawson families are united in their fear for their loved ones in constant peril.
