    Summary

    Of course Mrs Walker would believe Susan if she said not to worry, because when had anybody ever doubted that there was cause for worry if Susan said there was not? Even Peggy was half-inclined to doubt the evidence of her eyes, to suspect a Swallow prank. If she looked away for half a minute Susan would have whisked away the dirty dishes, changed the baby, and set out a veritable feast in defiance of rationing.

    It's the summer after Great Northern? John has joined the navy and Susan is now Captain of the Swallow-if only they had Swallow. Unfortunately there are other visitors at Holly Howe this summer who are learning to sail in Swallow.

    Summary

    Set spring/ summer 1938. With war increasingly likely, the Admiralty need updated charts of the Baltic Sea. Amateur yachtsmen and women are discretely asked to help with this, under the guise of leisurely pleasure cruising. The Swallow, Amazons and Callums are among them. Naval Lieutenant John Walker has been asked to do a little more than that and Nancy inevitably gets involved the task. Involves danger and some (not graphic) violence in a few chapters. A warning will be put at the start of any chapter with a fight. (I've had a complaint, via a different site, that I should have given a trigger warning for Nazis. I thought Berlin 1938 would be sufficient and that anyone who really needed that warning would know what the dates and place implied, or look it up, not just say they "couldn't be bothered to check." I was wrong. I still feel angry at the complainant's implied contempt for those who actually suffered contrasted with her extreme care for herself.)

    Summary

    This it the first part of a story I originally posted elsewhere as Pieces. That narrated events in chronological order. I decided to see if the story works better split into three connected sections not with every scene strictly chronological. If any reader has had the patience read the both versions, I would love to know which structure you prefer.
    In 1945, Dorothea's work at Bletchley Park has finished. She is wondering what happens next, but she isn't the only one.
