    Second book I've read in this series although this is nr. 12, and it's a nice holiday read. Actually it was quite exciting since it is now 1940 and four of the men connected with the Adams family, are among the last to try to be evacuated from Dunkirk before the German invasion of France. Three of the men make it back on the little armada rescue effort but one gets separated from his company thanks to a wound.This author seems to think that a romance novel should start with a woman that is not at all interested in the man and the man desperately trying to get to know her with no intentions from the beginning, beyond that. In the previous book it was an Adams girl, Emma Somers, that resisted Jonathan Hardy. In this one it is the French farmer's daughter Helene Aarlberg that "hates" Emma's brother Bobby. Eventually she decides to help him flee France in a little dinghy of hers and she confesses to loving him on arrival in Britain. This is the main story in this book even though Jonathan and Emma are back getting engaged in this one.The escape from France makes it an exciting read. Book ends sadly though with one death opening up a new love story or at least a relationship.

    This lovely family saga continues through WII and the evacuation of Dunkirk, with young Bobby missing his ride back home. With the help of a French farmer's daughter helping him across the channel, held my breath during this chapter waiting and wondering if they make it........ Read and find out. Great easy read, love this series.

    Finished this book yesterday! It was even better than the first in the series, "The Last Summer"(and that was great!).This author can write funny and lovable characters while still conveying the fear and trauma that engulfed them.Well done Ms. Staples,I look forward to reading "Fire Over London".
