Much of the narrative here is set in the time leading up to the end of World War II. Civilians in London face the horrors of the V2 bomb. There are several deaths and casualties in the novel.

Several other themes are touched on:

·         Displaced persons

·         Food shortages

·         Relationships between American GIs and British civiliansV

·         Estrangement of soldiers returning home

·         Orphans

·         The Black Market

·         Single mothers 

Lissa Evans has clearly researched this era well and the text comes across as authentic.
