‘Peter Yeldham’s historical fiction pedigree is one of the best in the country.’ - SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
Luke Elliott and Claudia Marsden have fallen in love at a perilous time. The Second World War is raging in the Pacific, barbed wire and gun emplacements are strung along Sydney's northern beaches in preparation for invasion. As the war moves closer, their ‘sextet’ of loyal school friends is splintering as individual career dreams are pursued. Luke yearns to be a writer, but a start in journalism is proving challenging. The war’s end unexpectedly provides Luke’s big break, but the pursuit of his dream will keep him away from Australia and Claudia, with surprising consequences for them both.
