Excerpt: When we entered our new home we encountered cold looks, cold words, and cold treatment. We were glad when the night came. On my narrow bed I moaned and wept, I felt so desolate and... More > alone. I had been there nearly a year, when a dear little friend of mine was buried. I heard her mother sob, as the clods fell on the coffin of her only child, and I turned away from the grave, feeling thankful that I still had something left to love. I met my grandmother, who said, "Come with me, Linda;" and from her tone I knew that something sad had happened. She led me apart from the people, and then said, "My child, your father is dead."

My heart rebelled against God, who had taken from me mother, father, mistress, and friend. The good grandmother tried to comfort me. "Who knows the ways of God?" said she. "Perhaps they have been kindly taken from the evil days to come."< Less

Captain Redford and bosun, Hoskins, began their war even before the official declaration when the Nazi crew of the Alfeldt committed an act of piracy by stealing Redford’s boat, The Sea Bitch,... More > and taking them hostage. Things didn’t look good for the pair, but this was the catalyst for Redford’s meeting with fearless Polish flyer, Jan Radek. When their stolen Heinkel crashed in the sea, he and his men were rescued by the Nazi sailors in the mistaken assumption that they were saving their own. I was minding my own business, fighting a rear-guard action at Dunkirk, when Redford and Hoskins came into my life. Redford decided to involve me in his personal war – and what a war it was – running the gauntlet of E-boats to transport Radek and his saboteurs to and from Nazi occupied France. Luck was bound to run out and, with our boat blown away from under us, we went on the run in occupied territory. Many times I wished I was back at Dunkirk – but then I wouldn’t have met Radek’s daring and beautiful sister, Erica.< Less
