Description

"The writing is beautiful and haunting. The characters are drawn with razor-sharp precision ... compelling reading of the highest standard, full of evocative triumph and tragedy." Goodreads.

In the calm of 1937, who could imagine the storms about to engulf a group of old friends at a sunny wedding? Some things are beyond imagination.

Fierce pilot Billie is glad she's got a job at last - only trouble is it's in some little dust-up in Spain. Secretive Toby has no wish to volunteer for anything: till he finds out for himself what blitzkrieg means. Newlywed Eliza is posted to Intelligence at Singapore - safer there than in London, she thinks.

But when fortress Singapore is reduced to embers, it is actress Izabel who is forced to play the role of her life.

Embers at Midnight is the second book in the Tempo series, by the winner of the Mountbatten Maritime Award and the Western Australian Premier's Book Award for Non-Fiction.
