It's 1939 and Mary, a young socialite, is determined to shock her blueblood political family by volunteering for the war effort. She is assigned as a teacher to children who were evacuated from London and have been rejected by the countryside because they are infirm, mentally disabled, or--like Mary's favorite student, Zachary--have colored skin. Tom, an education administrator, is distraught when his best friend, Alastair, enlists. Alastair, an art restorer, has always seemed far removed from the violent life to which he has now condemned himself. But Tom finds distraction in Mary, first as her employer and then as their relationship quickly develops in the emotionally charged times. When Mary meets Alastair, the three are drawn into a tragic love triangle and--while war escalates and bombs begin falling around them--further into a new world unlike any they've ever known.

Wonderful British humor, snappy rat-a-tat dialog, and the scope of WWII. Given the scope of the setting, the ending (telegraphed from many chapters before) is a bit of an emotional letdown after all the cliffhangers. Definitely worth a listen.

So much in this book to make you laugh (British humor), cry, and gain insight into British society during WW II.

For a higly readable book on Malta during WW2 find the Kappillan of Malta by Nicolas Monsarrat. The king of England awarded the George Cross to the whole nation of Malta for their heroism during WW2- the only time this has happened.
