This collection of stories reflects three very different stages in a young life. Alan was born in 1938. After his mother died, when he was four, he went to live with his grandparents. This was one of the happiest periods of his life, when their strict but loving care helped to form his character. His wonderful life came to an end when, aged nine, he was unwillingly removed from his grandparents to live with his father and stepmother, in a home where he had no love or affection and no feeling of belonging. The later stories show Alan in the RAF, when he meets a girl called Elizabeth, and his life undergoes the best change of all.
