A beautiful story of men and women working at an airplane factory during WWII, and the tales of how they got there. I'm entranced by the ending, which by an invocation of some typical movie endings of the era (the car driving away) put me in mind of a more modern ending, where we could imagine a wide shot of a factory town fading into the fields that remain where it once stood. Crowley does not drill deeply into his characters' inner lives, but he deftly and surely provides glimpses that reassure us that the depth and breadth are present
