In November, when he turns eighteen, Lewis Friday must join the Army.

Until then he has the summer. He goes to Cornwall and falls in love with Helen, a separated woman twenty years his senior. Eventually he goes to war and somehow manages to survive, sustained by her letters.But just as the war ends and he will be reunited with her, she stops writing and vanishes. Devastated and grief-stricken by the loss of everything he had hoped for, Lewis sets out to unravel the mystery of her disappearance.This is a book for anyone who has ever had a love affair.

If youve ever known the disbelief and wonderment as the new love begins, the joy of discovery, the golden bliss when the relationship becomes established and the heart-withering sorrow when it falls apart, you will want to read this book. Written with exquisite period detail, it is a beautiful and complex story that takes the reader to unexpected places of the heart.Fergus OConnells previous novel, Call The Swallow, was short listed for the 2002 Kerry Ingredients Irish Fiction Prize and nominated for the Hughes & Hughes / Sunday Independent Novel of the Year.
