*** stars. This World War II novel was written in 1944. The story concerns John Franklin, the British pilot of a Wellington Bomber who badly injures his arm when he brings his plane down in Occupied France. He and his crew make their way to an isolated farmhouse and are taken in by the family of a French farmer. Plans are made to smuggle the them back to Britain via Vichy controlled Marseilles but Franklin's condition worsens and he remains at the farm and falls in love with the farmer's daughter Françoise. This book reads much like the story lines of movies of the 1940's. I bonded with the characters and hoped for the safe escape of Franklin. An enjoyable war time love story. I especially liked the softer 70-year-old style of writing and characterization. (Hard to describe.) A man who has lived through the Blitz has a different perspective from a modern author. Time to get out an old WWII classic. Recommend.
