Blast From the PastPolly (hippy peace activist) and General Jack (US soldier destined to be President) meet during the Greenham Common women's protest and unlikely-ly fall in love. But then Jack decides to put his soldier career first and deserts Polly. Years later he reappears in her life, at 2.00am, coincidentally just as her stalker Peter also reappears.

This was pretty dull. Polly and Jack spend hours going round in circles, discussing relationships and politics while the story doesn't go anywhere. It felt like a good idea for a very short story stretched into a long book.
