An Adventure story, a love story and a
personal glimpse into social history.


Wings Over Leyte is set in 1946, in a world ravaged by war.

"There was no civilian transport between England and the
'Far East even letters were unreliable and through Army
Field Post Offices. The very idea of a young girl setting out
on her own was unthinkable, but I had already begun my
journey four years earlier when I had met Roswell Bradley,
and there could be no turning back."
Eric Bradley
 
  The author begins a hazardous journey across the world to rejoin the love of her life, Roswell, who was now responsible for disposing of military surplus throughout the Far East.

Wings Over Leyte captures a brief moment of transition from the magic of the old world to the one we know today. Sixty years ago India was in the throes of partition. Siam still a land of myth and legend, the French struggling in Indo-China, the Communists engulfing China and the Philippines gaining their independence. Against this background the author relates with humour and compassion how she and Roswell survived in an exotic environment through acts of God as well as acts of men.
