A gripping novel about WAAF officers during World War Two 1943. On an air-force base in Lincolnshire, three young women, all new recruits to the RAF, forge bonds that will last for the rest of their lives. Carole Kemp, just 19 and with no experience, is an MT driver. Gabby, tall, elegant and half-French, is employed as a radio transmitter operator until her language skills are put to work for the Resistance. Cheerful, buxom Bunty is the mess servantEasy Street, as she calls it, with plenty of opportunity to fraternise with the handsome, heroic airmen. Night after night the three women are left on the base, to wait and to worry as the Lancasters take off from Holmfirth on bombing-raids over Europe. Many years later, long after the war has ended, those who have survived will look back at a time of high drama, tragedy and unforgettable excitement ?
