BERLIN 1948: - A vanquished city of rubble - sliced into sections by the Allies, and set well back behind the Russian lines. A city of old women, black marketeers and sleazy cabarets in ruined cellars.In the British sector was Squadron Leader Michael Harrison, a war hero who had helped to bomb Berlin into fragments. He hated the Nazis who had killed his sister and her children. But here he was, doing his best to ensure that food and fuel was somehow brought in to save the surviving Berliners.In the Russian sector was young Lili Leicht, German, middle-class daughter of a university professor and now living in the ruins of her former home, trying to prevent her grandfather and two younger brothers from dying of malnutrition. Her mother had been killed by British bombers.As the tensions in the smouldering city grew worse, so Michael and Lili slowly fell in love. It was a love that surmounted all the prejudices and hatreds of war and offered a hope of understanding for the future.
Did a charity shop wander round Nottingham today with my two eldest girls and I think I've trained them a little too well in the *find a X'ing book* stakes - I hadn't even got in the door of Banado's when they were screaching "Look Mum, X'ing Books" *grins*
Had to bring this one home, how I missed it at the Meet I don't quite know (maybe too much red mist?) but it looks interesting... Shall wild release it when I've finished it :-D
