I passed this figure more than two and a half thousand words ago, but I was so engrossed in what I was writing that I didn’t notice. The story has now moved on and the Battle of Britain is raging. The book sees it from two viewpoints, those of Bruno and Alice, so it is told as two people who are, effectively, bystanders would see it.
This will be a brief post. I won’t go into details of saturation bombing and Spitfires. It’s all in the book. As I mentioned before, although the story is set during the Second World War, it isn’t really a war story. It is the tale of two people. I need to get back to it. The moment when our two protagonists meet again is approaching. I still have a little way to go before we get there. Back to the grindstone.
