When the heavy stone of a world war drops into the tranquillity of peace, its ripples reach far and wide, disturbing the lives of all they touch. This is the story of two young people whose entire teen years coincide with a war that changes their lives profoundly.

In 1939, when World War Two begins, they live in opposite sides of the world, then as the Japanese enter the war and the conflict drags on, they both reach maturity and enter the services.

When the widening ripples finally allow them to meet in the fifth year of the war, then tear them apart, they are deeply in love and face almost insurmountable hurdles to live a life together.

All the war facts in Ripples of War are authentic, including the rescue at sea.

Una Clarke, an Australian, met her English sailor husband while serving in the air force during that period. She began writing short stories when her third daughter started school. Her first book, Land of the Rippling Gold, is still read in schools. Her husband, being in the post office, moved from large country towns to cities, the seaside, small country towns and back to the city, over a period of thirty years, so the idea of the houses telling the story of their lives, loves, sorrows and joys was born. She never wanted to move but eventually realised that: Home Is Where the House Is.
