Epic love story set in the First World War. Harry Cardwell, 21 year-old shepherd from the border hills, is already a ‘veteran’ of the Somme battlefield. Returning from leave Harry confronts a burly Sergeant auctioning off a tin of intimate love-letters and photographs found in a shelled dug-out. To protect the privacy of those letters, Harry buys them himself. A simple act of decency that is to have a lifetime of consequence. Annie is the nurse in the photographs. A volunteer from New England with her doctor husband on a Harvard Medical Unit, she is now a widow on an ambulance train serving the Western Front. Harry finds Annie and they fall in love, their passion unfolding against the background of Passchendaele.
