A present quest . . .
Cassie Johns is a lively young author on the brink of success. Driving through the beautiful Trough of Bowland to a fancy-dress party, she gives a lift to an attractive young man wearing the uniform of an RAF pilot: ready for the party, Cassie assumes. But in the evening there's no sign of the airman.
A past romance . . .
Despite all warnings, rational Cassie becomes obsessed by the pilot: a man whose plane had crashed fifty years before, but whose long ago love for a girl at Deer's Leap makes him unable to rest in peace.
A war which divided lovers . . .
His romantic story, blissful and poignant, takes Cassie into a war-torn past where old passion burns and becomes entwined with new.
