Description
Summer 1942. Kitty, an army driver stationed in Sussex, meets Ed, a Royal Marine commando, and Larry, a liaison officer with Combined Operations under Mountbatten's command. She falls instantly in love with Ed, who falls in love with her; so does Larry. Both men go off to war, and Ed wins the highest military honor for his bravery; but, as Kitty learns, heroes don't always make the best husbands. William Nicholson—Oscar-nominated for the screenplay based on his stage play Shadowlands—here offers an epic that sweeps from wartime England and Nazi-occupied France to the post-war world.

"Nicholson's great strength lies in his ability to make the reader understand and care about his characters.... He is particularly concerned with morality and love, subjects that have inspired all great novelists. It is a joy to find a contemporary writer passionately engaged with both."—Elizabeth Jane Howard

"A terrific book with a wonderful understanding of life in pre-war and post-war Britain.... It reminds me of the first time I read Brideshead Revisited."—Julia Gregson
