This is an epic novel of love and war and life. It concerns three people, Evna Bellis, Joseph Tremaine and Leslie Hughes, who we follow from their birth in 1918, through their poverty-stsricken childhoods and into adulthood. The men, who are totally different, one being tall and handsome, the other being small and scrawny, one being Welsh, the other English, both of them in love with the pretty Evna, but both are taken into the Armed Forces to help fight the Second World War. We follow them from Arras to Dunkirk, from North Afric, Sicily and into Italy and stay with them for D-Day and beyond. We continue to follow their lives after the war, when children are born and lives settle down.
This is the most personal book written by S.D. Gripton and the reader may find tears flowing from their eyes. An emotional, romantic story told over many years. A blockbuster.
