Kate is a tall, witty, straight-talking Yorkshire girl with a gift for saying the right thing at the wrong time. She works in PR to fund her chronic partying habit and longs to meet someone who will take her away from the rat race to live happily ever after, just like society always promised. Danny loves Kate and is about to fulfil her every dream when she falls for a handsome Royal Air Force pilot named Guy. The romance is fast and passionate, and they are married before Kate discovers that Guy has another love, one which takes him away from her at just a phone call's notice. But military marriages are a lonely business and Danny won't accept defeat easily. Annie Waller's style is sharp, witty and direct, with a riotous but deeply emotional narrative that keeps you guessing all the way to the end.

My story is an angst ridden comedy that will have you on the edge of your seat shouting out advice and abuse to the heroine. It consumes your will to ‘read at leisure’ and demands you find out what happens next.
Marry a pilot and see the world – oh, if only...
Every woman expects the adoration pledged to them at the altar but like having a baby (birth is the easy part, it’s what comes afterwards that nobody warns you about), marriage is just the beginning.
Through Kate, the main character, I outline a dawning realisation that romantic military marriages simply cannot exist in reality. (If anyone does have a knight in shining armour then hold onto him, because my bet is he’s an alien integrating with enthusiasm.)
You as a reader are thrown right into the thick of it, experiencing irony, heartache and love. War and loneliness become Kate’s familiar companions, along with the temptation of returning to a normal life.
Writing this book sometimes got too close for comfort but at others, was purely cathartic.

Annie Waller lives in Wiltshire with her son (and now-doting husband). She wrote the book to avoid a dawning realisation that once darling child hit school age, part-time labour would be her destiny. Now she can look forward to her dream of affording a psychotherapist and hours of talking about herself.
