THERE HAD BEEN no news of Freddy, and as an entire week went past, Kitty
was beginning to despair. Martin and Roger had been very thoughtful in the
way they’d telephoned each day to reassure her that everything possible was
being done to find out what had happened to her brother – but neither of them
voiced their deepest fear that the chances of Freddy being found alive had
dwindled with each passing hour of silence.
Charlotte had telephoned a couple of times, but she’d been tearful and
mostly incoherent, which made Kitty feel depressed and even more helpless.
As the first week drifted into the second and there was still no news,
Charlotte threw herself into work and didn’t phone again. Their letters went

essential to carry on with this punishing routine, for if she exercised hard
enough and prayed long enough, Freddy would come home. A small part of
her mind told her it was illogical, but she refused to listen just in case she was

you tomorrow,’ she muttered. Letting the door swing shut behind her, she
headed for the showers. She had an hour before her next session with the
Peggy had been at the station for the past hour, handing out sandwiches, hot
tea and cigarettes from the WVS mobile canteen to the young servicemen
who were on their way to their next posting. Daisy had caused quite a stir
among them, she’d noticed, and being the star of the show, she’d beamed and
giggled delightfully as she was petted and praised. But Peggy’s feet were
hurting now, and she was looking forward to getting back to the Town Hall.
