Love and loyalty are put to the test in the aftermath of the First World War.
Soho 1925. Two young men meet - for one of them this is love at first sight, for the other only lust and guilt....
Paul Harris returns to England from self-imposed exile in Tangiers for an exhibition of his paintings. He leaves behind Patrick, the man he has loved since they met in the trenches in 1918, needing to discover if he has the strength to live without him and wanting to explore the kind of life he might have lived had it not been for the war. In Bohemian Soho, Paul meets Edmund, whose passionate love changes Paul’s idea of himself. With Edmund, Paul begins to believe that he may have another life to live, free of the guilt and regrets of the past.
But the past is not so easy to escape, and when Patrick follows Paul to London a decision must be made that will affect all their lives.

"As with all the best novelists, Husband's talent seems to draw its energy from the experience of writing from perspectives far removed from her own as she inhabits other genders, other sexualities, other eras. Her ventriloquism is compelling." (Patrick Gale)
"Marion Husband explores the morality of wartime Britain with intelligent and compassionate insight." (Mslexia)
