A semiautobiographical novel about the wonder of growing up in postwar England. This is a story that starts with a Spitfire and continues through the postwar years. It’s a lovely journey without too much sentiment which still manages to create the sense of a memoir, to capture the wonder and possibility of youth along with the terror of being young, doing the wrong thing, or missing out of loving the wrong person. From Nazis over Norfolk in 1945 through to New York in 2001, this is a book best read in one go, skiving off from work, hanging on tight..
