"This is a superb novel about the Battle of Britain and is a must read for anyone interested in that period in our history. It is now 67 years since the Battle of Britain and the summer of 1940 is gradually moving from common memory into a piece of history. So much has been written about the battle from the early factual accounts written within a year or two of the battle, through to a rash of 1950's pilot biographies and memoirs and a host of novels from the 1960's to the present day, that it is hard to imagine that a new novel could be written that would make the conflict seem fresh. Yet this is exactly what `Chasing the Wind' has achieved." Simon Rodwell


Helena has written a book that will become a classic. It was rated by Bob Doe, one of the top Battle of Britain fighter aces, as a book that told the story correctly and he was delighted to recommend this to a wider public. This book will be enjoyed for many years, however many times you read this. Written from actual events and pilots experiences during the air fighting of the Battle of Britain, it tells the story of just why a few hundred men prevented invasion and the horrors of death camps being a reality in Britain. Never was so much owed by so many to so few. These men now have a book to tell it like it was. Highly recommended" Paul Davies Battle of Britain Historical Society, FRTCA

"This is the best book on the life of us fighter pilots in the Battle of Britain that I have ever seen. Refreshingly it got it smack on the way it was for us. I couldn't put it down!" Battle of Britain "Ace" Wg/Cdr Bob Doe, DSO, DFC, and Burma Star
