Season Of Leaves - Charles BridgeA secret kept for a lifetime – a love that never died

In the chaos and darkness of war, the unimaginable can happen…

A bundle of unopened letters from Rose Pepper’s Czech lover Krystof – discovered in her old age – lead her and her daughters to Prague, and the truth that is buried there.

Rose’s extraordinary story, following her heart and the love of her life, takes her from the bombed-out rubble of Plymouth in World War II, to a farm on the windswept cliffs of Cornwall and then to post-war Prague, seething with spies and informers. But on her journey lies danger and betrayal, while awaiting her in England, with terrible patience, is the cold, controlling man she married.

Could going back and reliving the pain of lost love and its devastating aftermath be too much for Rose to bear? And dare she open Krystof’s crumbling letters and come face to face with what happened to him?
