Nick, aka Blue Sky Guy, is working as a coastwatcher behind the Japanese lines on the island Bougainville. Before Nick has to return to Bougainville, he wants to spend one perfect night with Tanner.

A beautiful and well-written short story. The ending guarantees some emotional heartache. It only needs one beaut 4 stars. It only needs one beautiful cover, few poignant words and approximately 30 pages to drown out ugliness. Author Lisa Henry did it for me. Thank you. I'm here. I'm listening. View all 43 comments.

A bright spot in all the darkness of war. Tanner is an American soldier fighting in an island on what's today called Papua New Guinea where me meets an Australian youth, Nick, who serves as a coast-watcher.
Nick has lived in the place his whole life, he knows it like the back of his hand. Nick is well-known for his radio broadcasts during his incursions, which gave him the nickname of Blue Sky Guy. Tanner recognizes him instantly, and they both decide to have a perfect night together.
Because the A bright spot in all the darkness of war. Because the future is uncertain and the past doesn't matter. In just a few pages, Lisa Henry manages to convey what she wants to convey. So short and so many emotions. It seemed a lot to take on faith. He only knew that the war had given him one perfect night with Nick. Out of the chaos and the madness and the horror, the war had given him Nick.
And this place, this point in time, suffused everything that had gone before with meaning. There were hundred of men, hundred of thousands, who would never find meaning in any of this. Yesterday, Tanner was one of them. Tanner raised himself up onto his elbow. Tanner leaned down and kissed him gently. He swallowed. When he opened the again, they shone.
Warmth spread through him. Gave us radios and told us we were like Ferdinand the bull. We sit under the trees and smell the flowers, and we watch the world go by. Until we get stung.

Lisa Henry is one of the most talented writers I have read in that she can turn her hand from light-hearted fluff, to something other-worldy, to something deep and angst filled seamlessly. I cannot say how much I admire this talent. When Lisa offered up five copies to commenters of this book for a read to review I have to admit I jumped straight in without even checking out the book she was offering.
That is how much faith I have in this author's writing. I should Lisa Henry slays me every time. I should have remembered her penchant for pulverising my heart though This book is beautiful and poignant especially with the 70th anniversary of VE day here int he UK coming up. We hear so much about war, both current and past, we know the facts and the figures and the atrocities that occurred - yet sometimes it is the little stories that truly bring it home how much devastation war can cause.
This story is about one perfect night. One perfect night in the midst of the second world war - and it was beautiful, it was a moment out of forever that could not be taken away from either of them. I won't lie and tell you this story has an hea, because it doesn't, and that is not what it is about. One kiss The first time Noah Bryant meets Colbie Michaels, they collide at the top of a snowy mountain in California and sparks fly.
