Lily valance wants to forget the war. She’s determined to enjoy the world of the 1920s, with its music, singing, laughter and pleasure. When she meets Captain Stephen Winters, a decorated hero back from the Front, she’s drawn to his wealth and status. In Lily, Stephen sees his salvation from the guilt of surviving the Flanders plains, where so many were lost.
But it’s a dream that cannot last. The hidden tensions of the respectable facade of the Winters household come to a head. Stephen’s nightmares merge ever closer with reality as the truth of what took place in the mud and darkness brings him and all who love him to a terrible reckoning.
