"In love we find out who we want to be; in war we find out who we are." - Kristin Hannah

October of 1938, England. 

Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain has just promised peace for Europe, but British headlines describe a world very different from the one assured by their leader. In Spain, civil war rages on. In Germany, citizens fear for their future. In France, the government has finally completed an armed line of fortifications along it's eastern border. Contrary to the wishes of the hopeful, Europe lies dangerously on the precipice of war.

Yet, in a time of terrific upheaval, a young girl must begin her own journey as she sets sail across the Atlantic ocean to aid her ailing grandfather. There, she'll have to fight to keep tremendous love in a world that so desperately wants hate and war.

I'm really liking this a lot, and it's already kind of stressing me out, wondering what's going to happen because this is such an optimistic start and I'm worried things are going to go downhill

I always kind of imagined Harry in this situation in Dunkirk for some reason
