Mark Great review, Lisa. I love this novel as it so accurately portrays the fear of death and the immediacy of life in war damaged London, hammered by the Blitz. As you say 'the fluidity of social status' brought an end to old norms and people (like my Mother) were suddenly adrift like ships that had slipped their moorings, falling for the charms of the brave airman in uniform, adding greater colour but unbelievable complexity, to their innocent lives.
