An epic story of changing times, courage and a love story only made possible by war.

‘A rich and skilful novel dramatizing how the war changed so many lives’ Elizabeth Buchan

For Jack, orphaned and homeless after the Blitz, a new life begins in the Merchant Navy. As he waits for the ships to gather in a secret Scottish harbour, he meets Olivia – adrift from her sheltered home, yet relishing her new freedoms.

Before the war, they would never have met. But these are extraordinary times, and the only choice is to live like there is no tomorrow.
