Elsie Hayworth wanted to be liberated. She wanted to start a new, become her own person and get away from her meticulously planned future. When Britain declared war on Germany, she saw it as her chance, so she joined the WAAF (the Womens Auxilery Airforce).
She is plunged into the world of war, where hope is rife, and where the naivety of the youth is vanquished. Where love is found and lost all too easily. Where everlasting bonds are made and broken.
Amidst all this, when the world seemed to be falling apart, she found Jack McFarlane.
