9780006510512: One Summer at Deer's Leap

A present-day love story which springs from a tragic wartime romance …

It is the 1990s. Cassie Johns is a young, lovely writer on the threshold of success after a less-than-silver-spooned girlhood. Driving through the glorious countryside to a fancy-dress party in the Vale of Boland, she gives a lift to a mysteriously attractive young man wearing the uniform of an RAF pilot: ready for the party Cassie assumes. But in the evening there is no sign of the airman.

Cassie – hitherto rational, sceptical, a woman of her times – becomes obsessed by Jack Hunter, a pilot whose plane crashed in 1944, but whose long-ago love for a girl at Deer’s Leap makes him unable to rest in peace. Cassie’s love for the dead hero takes her into an unknown war-torn past, where old passion burns and becomes entwined with new.

From the Back Cover:

Elizabeth Elgin's wonderful new novel combines a present-day love story with a mysterious wartime romance.

It is the 1990s. Cassie Johns is a young, lively writer on the threshold of success. Driving to a fancy-dress party at Deer's Leap – an old, isolated house in the beautiful Trough of Bowland – she gives a lift to an attractive man wearing the uniform of an RAF pilot: ready for the party Cassie assumes. But in the evening there is no sign of the airman.

Despite all warnings, Cassie – hitherto rational, sceptical, a woman of her time – becomes obsessed by Jack Hunter, a pilot whose plane crashed in 1944, but whose long-ago love for a girl at Deer's Leap makes him unable to rest in peace. The story of his wartime romance, in all its bliss and poignancy, is told with the passion which Elizabeth Elgin's readers have warmed to in her previous books.

And fifty years later, Cassie's attraction to the dead hero takes her into the unknown, war-torn era, where old passion burns and becomes entwined with the new.
