When ARP warden Molly sees a light shining through the darkness of London on a cold winter's night in the middle of the blitz she's infuriated with the careless American who struck it. Doesn't he know there's a war on?
Guy's just trying to find his way through a maze of unlit streets. He's very sorry and Molly reluctantly forgives him. When he accompanies her on her nightly rounds the two learn about each other, themselves and whether it's really possible to fall in love in only one night - especially when there's no guarantee of tomorrow.
This is a lovely, evocative story full of heart and emotion. Molly and Guy meet and spend a night together, talking about their lives and the possibility of love at first sight.
Ms. Burke is extremely adept at creating dialogue. You know Molly has an English accent via how she uses language. That's the same way you know Guy is an American. Both are endearing characters and you are just sucked into their conversation and the intimacy that grows between them. A totally satisfying love story!
