This is my second historical romance/war novel: the first being And In The Morning. I had the awesome privilege of interviewing some WW2 veterans for this novel and even though it’s fiction, a lot of it is based on amazing, true stories.
It’s 1944 and Dianne Parker serves in the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force, working closely with the RAF bomber crews who risk their lives flying raids over Germany two or three times a week. Casualties are very high, many of the planes don’t return. The aircrews and WAAF’s try to live a normal life – and try to avoid falling in love, because the future is so uncertain and promises only grief and disappointment. When Dianne meets Danny Young, a gunner in a Lancaster bomber who has thirty more missions to complete, it seems futile to Dianne that she should let their feelings grow. The odds of any love affair surviving the war are too small. Danny believes differently and is determined to have nothing standing between them. Not even Nazi Germany and the prospect of a violent death, shot down inside enemy territory.
At The Going Down Of The Sun is the story of the extraordinary courage not only of the RAF bomber crews, but of the WAAF women who planned the raids, armed and serviced the aircraft, endured hardship, rationing and German bombing raids – and ultimately sent their friends and lovers to war in the night skies over Berlin.
You can buy At The Going Down Of The Sun from Amazon here. Many other outlets such as Apple and Barnes & Noble also stock it. Make sure you search for G.M.Hague as the author. Please note the cover image above is a new one and isn’t uploaded to retailers yet, because I’m producing an audiobook version and I want to relaunch the book and audiobook together. If you have any trouble, please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be glad to help out.
