All five books in Thomas Weaver’s “Our Time is Now” series in one volume.
A steamy, explicit, wartime romance. For Mary and Tommy, the conventional morality of the 1940s made their relationship difficult, particularly because their powerful sex-drives refused to be denied. Soon, the urge for physical love is too powerful to resist, and some of their activities become more than a little kinky. Under the shadow of the war, the nightly bombing, and the likelihood that Tommy will soon be called up into the army, life is far from easy.
** Thomas Weaver has created a marvellously sensual story of the urges of young love at a time when sex before marriage was regarded as immoral. Beneath the surface of respectability, however, there was far more going on than some would have realised. The characters in this book, some only making cameo appearances, tell of how it really was for many. These include Mary’s mother, Pat, who looks and behaves more like her elder sister, and doesn’t seem the least concerned when she is naked in front of Tommy. Pat’s friend, who is probably her lesbian lover. Charlie, a young woman at the factory where Mary works who knows more about sex than any girl of her age should know and is definitely interested in Tommy – and in Mary too. The Scoutmaster and “Brown Owl” caught together naked under a blanket during a storm, and Jimmy the Spiv and his long-suffering girlfriend.
