When a bombing raid destroys nearly everything she holds dear, May joins the ATS and becomes a gunner girl.

"Excellent story with a superb narrater."
This story gave me a wonderful and interesting insight to experiences of the war days and how people coped with various situations. A history lesson with a difference that I shall never forget. 5 star all round.
This book is so well written even when you think you can guess what going to happen it has twists and twirls and keeps your interest throughout.
I have listened to a few of Mary Gibson books, She has become one of my favourite authors, can't wait to start another, she seems to get the history as well as a great story, you can't fail but to enjoy.
