Abstract:

England, 1942. After three years of WWII, Britain is showing the scars. But in this darkest of days, three lives intertwine, changing their destinies and those of many more. Dr Archibald McIndoe, a New Zealand plastic surgeon with unorthodox methods, is on a mission to treat and rehabilitate badly burned airmen - their bodies and souls. With the camaraderie and support of the Guinea Pig Club, his boys battle to overcome disfigurement, pain, and prejudice to learn to live again. John 'Mac' Mackenzie of the US Air Force is aware of the odds. He has one chance in five of surviving the war. Flying bombing missions through hell and back, he's fighting more than the Luftwaffe. Fear and doubt stalk him on the ground and in the air, and he's torn between his duty and his conscience. Shy, decent and sensible Stella Charlton's future seems certain until war breaks out. As a new recruit to the WAAF, she meets an American pilot on New Year's Eve. After just one dance, she falls head over heels for the handsome airman. But when he survives a crash, she realises her own battle has only just begun.
