Summary

Some memories fade, some refuse to let you go.

Rhoda Middleton suspects her husband Peter is having an affair. But when Rhoda tracks the mysterious woman down, she finds she is not his lover after all, but the wife of his wartime best friend, Archie Foster.

There is only one problem - Rhoda has never even heard of Archie Foster.

Hurt and bewildered by this betrayal of trust, Rhoda tries to find out why Peter has kept his friendship with Archie hidden for so long.

Taking us on a journey from the atmospheric filming of the romantic wartime classic, Brief Encounter, to the extraordinary Great March of prisoners of war through snow-bound Germany in 1945, this is a novel of friendship, hope, and how in the end, it is the small things that enable love to survive.
