It is 1940. The world is at war, and all that stands between England and Nazi-occupied Europe is the tiny (fictitious) Channel Island of Armorel – controlled by German soldiers but home to loyal villagers, a pacifist painter . . . and a pedigree Guernsey cow named Venus.

A plot is hatched by the War Office in London to liberate Venus – and so this intrepid adventure begins, combining romantic young love and patriotic heroism with submarine missions, enemy action, wartime tragedy and cow-napping.

First published in 1951 and now re-issued by Manderley Press, with an introduction by Rosa Rankin-Gee and a front cover featuring a wallpaper design by British illustrator Edward Bawden.

Appointment with Venus one of best books written to show what might have happened if Britain had been occupied, as much for what is glossed over and romanticized as included. I strongly recommend a read.’ Anne Sebba
