From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

First US edition (William Morrow)

Pastoral is a novel by the English author Nevil Shute.[1] It was first published in 1944 by Heinemann. Its theme is that even in the midst of war, and among warriors, everyday life, such as romance, will continue.[2]


Pastoral is a romance set on an English airbase which revolves around the pilot and crew of a Vickers Wellington bomber, their interest in fishing, and the pilot's developing relationship with a young WAAF signals officer.


After its release the book received reviews from The Washington Post and The New York Times,[3] the latter of which wrote that the book was "an excellent story and its writer grows in sublety and skill with each succeeding novel".[4]
