Autumn, 1914. Clara, a passionate young London wife and the mother of two small girls, is married to Henry, who she discovers is having an affair. Clara too has fallen in love with someone else – James, a divorced man who works at the Foreign Office. When both men enlist and go off to the front, Clara must wait fearfully to see which, if either of them, will return from the fighting. Meanwhile, the inept politicians who allowed the war to start are replaced by the inept generals, and so the war drags on with huge loss of life. It looks as though Clara has lost her chance for happiness. Can she find the courage for one last desperate attempt to make her dreams come true?
