Being a British soldier during World War II, Harry has seen it all.
The life in the eyes of his comrades as they play poker around the card table. The mangled body of his classmate lying still on the frozen, blood-stained grass. The instinctive need for survival and something else, something darker, that overtakes a man when aiming a rifle at the enemy.
He has experienced horrors that one could only imagine. He has committed acts of cruelty that will live with him until the day he dies.
Will it ever become too much to handle?
Lost, broken, and confused; he makes a decision that will alter his life forever and sends him suddenly on the run.
But what will happen when, in the face of death, he stumbles across a girl who needs him just as much as he needs her, and these two unsuspecting lives intertwine?
In a time filled with ruthlessness, terror, and darkness, is hope too much to ask for?
Maybe it would be best to remember that war all too easily destroys everything pure and lovely that comes in the midst of its path.
