But the lives of these two are still though more remotely linked; their reunions with other men and women from the old Station and Kerren's efforts to adapt herself to a life far less sheltered than her wartime one provide both comedy and some near-tragedy. Mary Hocking drew on her own experiences as an ex-Wren to trace the changes of emotional temperature the disillusionment and the challenges the need to realize new ways of life and the necessity to re-create themselves experienced by her characters in this wonderful novel.
