1914. Mining engineer Tommy Birch goes off to war, leaving his new wife, Rita, behind in Pontefract. On the front line, Tommy runs afoul of a German mine and is reported as missing, presumed deceased by his fellow soldiers. But Tommy isn't dead. Found behind enemy lines, wearing only a pair of boots stolen from a dead German, Tommy is picked up by the enemy, who believe him to be one of their own. He spends weeks recuperating in a German military hospital, where he meets and quickly falls in love with, a nurse named Anna Kohler, who tends him back to health.
Meanwhile, back in Pontefract, Rita is living with Tommy's family when she receives notification that Tommy has been killed in action. But his body still hasn't been found, and Rita never gives up hope that Tommy is out there somewhere, so great is her love for him. Will Rita ever be reunited with Tommy, or is she destined to spend a lifetime wondering if her husband is still alive?

Easy listening and thought provoking.
Family, love, and WW1 written in a thought provoking yet enjoyable way with many twists and turns. As always, the narrator can make or break an audiobook and Anne Dover has aced this! Her voices and accents have triumphed again, so much so, that I now search for her before choosing my next book!
