The First World War is looming and for young sweethearts, Christina and Will, their adventures are just beginning as they head to London – their heads full of dreams. But the reality is altogether more difficult. Will has just one ambition – to design and pilot flying machines. As he strives to fulfil his dream, Christina is left to make a new life for herself around the airfield. She soon makes friends and begins to enjoy her newly-found independence but nothing will ever overcome her terror of the aeroplanes that Will loves so much. And when war breaks out, she fears the worst . . . that she may lose the man she loves for ever. A welcome reissue of this much-loved family saga, this book was the winner of the Carnegie Medal.
