    Book details


It was 1940, and many of the younger members of the Adams family were caught up in the war in France. Boots, now a Major and on the staff of General Sir Henry Simms, was one of the thousands of British troops trying to escape in the armada of little boats from Dunkirk. His son Tim and nephew Bobby were also struggling to reach the coast and safety, while Eloise was with the ATS awaiting the homecoming soldiers at Portsmouth with a comforting cup of tea and a ticket home. Boots and Tim both made it safely back, but of Bobby there was no sign, and the family all feared the worst.

In a farm some miles from Dunkirk, however, Bobby was alive but injured, and trapped by the advancing Germans. The farmer and his wife offered him refuge but Helene, the farmer's independent-minded daughter, was scathing about the retreating British army and gave the brave, joking young sergeant a hard time. Working in the fields, dodging the German soldiers, Bobby was desperately looking for a way to escape and Helene, despite her hostility, found herself increasingly anxious to help the Englishman to get back home. Their adventures were to thrill the Adams family when they came to hear about it.

Wartime bravery, love and tragedy come to the Adams family.

    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".
