Lately, life has been tough for fourteen year old Ellen Logan. With her country embroiled in the Second World War, her brothers in the service and her parents busily supporting the war effort, Ellen is forced to shoulder many of the family responsibilities.
Life is even tougher for Stephen Dearborn, a young British pilot in training at the local airfield. Inexperienced and far from home, Stephen's romantic dreams of being a flyer are shattered by the harsh reality of his training.
Even as Ellen and Stephen are forced to grow up before their time, their friendship continues to deepen - and together they discover that sometimes falling apart is only steps away from falling in love.
