Summary (From the publisher):

Alfie Day, RAF airman and former World War II POW, never expected to survive the war. He may not have even wanted to, choosing to be a tail gunner, exposed, alone and watchful for his skipper and his crew through night after night of bombing missions. Now, five years after the end of the war and more alone than ever, Alfie finds himself drawn to unearth those intense, strangely passionate days by working as an extra on a POW film. What he will discover on the set about himself, his loves and the world around him will make the war itself look simple.

  • "While fans of military fiction will find an excellent war story in these pages, Kennedy has enhanced her plot with something better: a brutally honest yet highly sympathetic portrait of modern men damaged by events beyond their control." Library Journal
  • "Kennedy is known for her language and methodical sentence structure, and this dexterity sparkles in her narration, which includes Alfred's interior thoughts as well as ingenious forays into the second person." School Library Journal
  • "While the movie scenes are compelling...Kennedy shifts into top gear when she describes the war in the air...And the reader, whom Kennedy has tossed this way and that with great craft but no discernible effort, finds a welcome peace, too." The Denver Post
