James Facos

The Silver Lady

Merriam Press Historical Fiction HF12 (First Edition, 2015). In The Silver Lady Facos evokes the tension, triumph and tragedy of an American bomber crew in England during the height of the war over Germany in 1944. The horrors of an air war fought and flown high above the target are described in realistic detail, but there are other levels to the story: there is a love story involving the youngest of the crewmen, and the intensely emotional ordeal of an idealistic Quaker who has to come to terms with war and death in the way that only one who kills can know. England’s peaceful countryside, the smoky landscape of Germany and an explosive conflict within the crew itself are masterfully realised in a nostalgic, authentic and excitingly told tale of war, its warriors and its victims.
