A Moment in Time - H E Bates


Bates' attempt at a female narrator isn't terribly convincing, but then none of the characters have more than one dimension. He obviously specialises instead in lavish descriptions of the English countryside but it doesn't work well as a counterpoint metaphor to war. The most interesting thing is the is the unusual perspective of a young girl's relationship with pilots but the plot is pretty predictable. Much better than 'The Black Prince', though.
