When Gloria met Ron, he was an American pilot who thought nothing of getting hit by shrapnel in the cockpit. She was working in a munitions factory in Bristol during the Blitz, but found time to grab what she wanted. But war has an effect on people. This work explores the dark impulses of women whose war crimes are committed on the home front.

This is Gloria's story, told to us in flashbacks and glimmers of suppressed memories from her chair in her old folks home. Gloria is one of the best characters in a book that I have ever come across and her story is in turns both hilarious and heartbreaking. Highly recommended. Read full review
