What ties two brothers together? And what can tear them apart? Lucien and Norman Parker are as close as twin brothers can be. Together with their father, they run a railway station in Warm Springs, OK, during the Depression. But they never expect a woman to come between them: both Lucien and Norman fall in love with the same girl. Lucien marries her, and soon World War II takes both men away from home, to the Pacific. It is there, as prisoners of war, that their bond breaks: one of them dies, and the other makes the agonizing decision that will change his life forever.
