But in the evening there is no sign of the airman. Cassie Johns is a young, lovely writer on the threshold of success after a less-than-silver-spooned girlhood. A present-day love story which springs from a tragic wartime romance It is the 1990s. Cassie - hitherto rational, sceptical, a woman of her times - becomes obsessed by Jack Hunter, a pilot whose plane crashed in 1944, but whose long-ago love for a girl at Deer's Leap makes him unable to rest in peace. Cassie's love for the dead hero takes her into an unknown war-torn past, where old passion burns and becomes entwined with new.. Driving through the glorious countryside to a fancy-dress party in the Vale of Boland, she gives a lift to a mysteriously attractive young man wearing the uniform of an RAF pilot: ready for the party Cassie assumes
A memorable book While the story starts out a little slow, it turns into a very romantic and engaging book which I will remember for a long time. I think this book could be made into a great movie.. Leigh Morton said The best book I ever read. This review was actually written by Leigh, not Allen:) This book sat on my shelf for several years until I finally picked it up the other day. I tore through it during the long Labor Day weekend, barely putting it down to sleep. This is the most beautiful love story I have ever read and it is still haunting me days later and I am making a nuisance of myself, suggesting it to friends. :) This story could have easily been extremely cheesy, but Elgin's writing style and realistic emotions
