My Father’s Moon

Vera is young, awkward and naive. As schoolgirl she has her sheltered idealism, her Quaker boarding-school education, and the warm, enveloping security of her parents. As student nurse at the large military hospital during the war, her transition to womanhood – and victim to more experienced players – is rapid, painful and disastrous. Yet, for Vera, always there is the moon – her companion, comforter, and the unbreakable link with her father.
