Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "My LEAST favorite Margaret Mayhew Book (thus far)"

    After reading "The Crew" which was excellent in every way (not available on Audible, probably a licensing thing), this book was a terrible disappointment. The characters are not fleshed out in a pleasing way and by the end of the book I was disgusted with both main characters. If I could return this book, I would.

    Any additional comments?

    Margaret mayhew writes really good war stories and this one is no exception, only in this one the war is over and Michael harris, the pathfinder who sent down flares lighting a path for the bombers, finds himself in berlin trying to help the berliners in the british sector to survive against all the dirty tricks the russians put in the way. he falls in love with lily a young woman in the russian sector.
    well written characters, the kind you get involved with, and situations.
    recommended if you like war stories.
