Rhoda Middleton's marriage is in trouble. Worse, when she opens one of her husband Peter's letters and finds it is from another woman, she is convinced he is having an affair.
Rhoda tracks the mysterious woman down, but discovers she is not Peter's lover after all, but the wife of his best friend, Archie Foster.
There is only one problem - Rhoda has never even heard of Archie Foster.
Devastated by this betrayal of trust, Rhoda tries to find out how and why her husband, Peter, has kept this friendship hidden for so long.
Her search leads her back to 1945, and the war, but as she gradually uncovers Peter's wartime secrets she must wrestle with painful memories of her own.
For if they are ever to understand each other, Rhoda too must escape the ghosts of the past.
Taking us on a journey from the atmospheric filming of Brief Encounter, to the extraordinary Great March of prisoners of war through snow-bound Germany, this is a novel of friendship, hope, and how in the end, it is the small things that enable love to survive.
