Island at War is set in Saint Gregory, a fictitious island in the Channel Islands, during the Second World War. It tells the harrowing story of how three families are affected by the German occupation and how they managed to live and work alongside the enemy for five years. The three families are; the Dorrs, whose son is at war but unexpectedly returns, the Mahys, shopkeepers, recovering from both the loss of the head of their family, Mr Mahy and their shop. The third family is the simple fishing family called the Jonases who are very tight-knit and endeavour to make the best of a bad situation. Heart-stopping suspense and an unexpected romance unfold in an atmosphere steeped in the ambiguity and senselessness of war.
