Fergus O'Connellabout this book: This book is a love story set against the background of the D-Day landings. We rarely think about D-Day nowadays but our world would be a very different place had it failed. We owe the people who took part in it a tremendous debt of gratitude.
Like all my novels, this book is about people caught up in extraordinary events and who, in the midst of all that, try to find love.
This is the first time I've written a book in the first person and also the first time I've had an American hero.
I wrote the book during a year that I lived in the hills outside Florence in Italy. When I was writing it, I had a copy of the journal John Steinbeck kept while he was writing 'The Grapes of Wrath' and every morning, before I started work, I would read a day's entry.
The book took a year to write. I hope you'll enjoy it.
