Synopsis

Having left his working class family roots in Cumberland to take up a scholarship at Cambridge University, Guy Malyon could be mistaken for believing he would never again face such radical change. However, when the stunning, aristocratic but hedonistic Gilda Besse crashes into his life, an unlikely but passionate love affair begins.
 
Their backgrounds and principles are worlds apart but the relationship cannot be broken, despite the attentions of other lovers, including the alluring Mia whom they ultimately share.
 
This epic story follows the unlikely couple across Europe, from the decadent Paris of the '30s to London's impoverished East End; from the killing fields of Spain's Civil War to occupied France - until finally a dangerous secret threatens to tear them apart.
