BLUE INK REVIEW OF "MORAL FIBRE

 Blue Ink Reviews gives Moral Fibre a rare "Star"!

Read full Review here.

Below are some excerpts.

 

With superb plotting, Schrader focuses on Kit’s character development. Schrader initially depicts Kit as a traumatized veteran, driven to rejoin the RAF out of guilt for his skipper’s death. As Kit processes this trauma, readers watch his confidence as a bomber squadron pilot and his devotion to Georgina grow. 


 Meanwhile, Schrader weaves in subplots concerning Georgina, his extended family (of both African and British descent), and fellow crew members. Two particularly intriguing strands involve Georgina: her experiences teaching children evacuated from London, and her relationship with Kit’s mother, who is of Zulu heritage. 

The story is well-grounded in historical research and buttressed by Shrader’s re-creation of actual battles, as well as an Historical Note and Glossary of RAF Terminology at novel’s end.

Riding the icy, moonlit sky,

they took the war to Hitler. 

Their chances of survival were less than fifty percent. 

Their average age was 21.

This is the story of just one bomber pilot, his crew and the woman he loved. 

It is intended as a tribute to them all.
