'Love and the soul transcend chronology - through art, literature, memory, faith, we meet and inhere with ideas and the delicate threads of people's lives across expanses of history. Minds elide and coalesce across years and centuries. In England and France, in the dark early months of 1918, a young Australian soldier encounters remarkable women from widely different places on the arc of time. Traumatised by years of relentless savagery and injury, he finds himself facing hope and eternity with courage, tragic force, profound closeness and sacrificial trust in ultimate grace.'
