Hanover Street, the movie

Have you ever seen the movie called Hanover Street? It’s a film set during WWII. The hero of the story is played by Harrison Ford. He’s an American who enlisted in the RAF when the Blitz was on. He falls for Lesley Anne Down and they begin an affair. She’s a British nurse married to a man who works in the war office. He’s played by Christopher Plummer. 

It’s a great story of love and sacrifice. The actors are all excellent and it has a beautiful script. I love, love this movie. I own it both on VHS and DVD.

Right now, I’m working on book two of my series of books set on the RMS Queen Mary- the hero in this book is the brother of the hero in book one.  Book one is called The Gambler and book two is The Gambler’s Brother. Jeremy Northam is the inspiration for the hero in book one- Dirk McSwain. Harrison Ford is the inspiration for the hero in book two- Bo McSwain. Book one comes out in April 2012 and book two in October 2012 from Desert Breeze Publishing. There will also be a book three called The Gambler’s Daughter.

Check out these pictures: can you see them as brothers? I sure can.


  1. Oh, yeah, they look great to me. 🙂 I haven’t seen Hanover Street. It sounds like it’s up there with An Affair to Remember.

    • Yeah. it definitely is. You really need to see it. It’s quite heroic. It’s really a must see.

  2. I’m a HUGE HF fan. I can’t believe I haven’t heard of this movie. Thanks for sharing it. I’ll go check it out.

  3. Ciara- you are in for a treat. It’s sooo good.
