From the moment Rhoda Middleton opens one of her husband’s letters, and finds it’s from another woman, she’s sure he’s having an affair.
Rhoda tracks down the mysterious woman, but is astonished to find out that she isn’t the femme fatale she’d imagined. She’s the wife of her husband’s best friend, Archie Foster.
There’s only one problem – Rhoda’s never even heard of Archie Foster.
Devastated by this betrayal of trust, Rhoda tries to find out how and why Peter’s kept this friendship hidden for so long. Her search leads her back to 1945, 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.
