About this title

Synopsis:

Tense, Exciting, Absorbing, Thoughtful. It is 1940 and the Battle of Britain is raging fiercely in the skies above Great Britain. On a Wing and a Prayer is the story of James Graham, a young Fighter Pilot, flying Hurricanes in the daily combat of the Battle. The novel vividly describes James's apprehension and fears of being the "new boy" on the Squadron. Through passages of descriptive, exciting, action-packed narrative, the story takes the reader - as if in the cockpit with James during dogfight action - to when he becomes an experienced and seasoned Fighter Pilot fighting for survival. During this time he also has to come to terms with the loss of Squadron comrades and friends and other personal tragedy. Through its characters, the novel also tells what it was like, not only for James's family but, also, for civilians, evacuees, rescue workers, those working for the War Effort and for all those in Britain as they awaited - expected to be invaded and over-run. On a Wing and a Prayer is the first part of the compelling story of the Graham family as they and others live and survive through the Second World War.
