Recommended by Kate Forsyth, The Night Watch is a story of four Londoners set during World War II. It is a compelling read that takes the reader into the heart of wartime London – think air raids, blacked-out streets – to where secrets and sexual adventure thrive in the dark.

Three women and a young man with a past, take centre stage. Kay, who drove an ambulance during the war and lived life at full throttle, now dresses like a man and wanders the streets, searching. Helen harbours a painful secret, and glamorous and aptly named Viv, stands by her soldier lover to the point of foolishness. Duncan is the man with a past.

Surprising, honest and memorable.
