England, 1944. When soldier Danny Lock returns at last to England from the battlefields of Europe, it is not the joyful homecoming he dreamt of all those nights in Italy. Disabled and embittered, he knows he can never have a normal life, while his young wife Rachel, determined to revive their marriage, struggles to understand the man her husband has become.
Then Captain Andrews comes to visit. His attraction to Rachel is instant, but the tension between the two men seems to stem from an earlier time. What happened in Italy to make Danny so hostile to an officer he once trusted and admired? And why has Andrews come to visit him in the face of it?
As all three strive to shake off the ghosts of the war, they must each face their own searching questions about the nature of love and loyalty in this moving and intimate novel, which explores the lives of a small group of people caught in the devastating legacy of the Second World War.
