AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Alec and Margie Roper have been married one year; tonight, in their flat looking out over Sydney, they are celebrating, alone save for a bottle of champagne. Alec is a Flight Lieutenant in the R.A.A.F.; nowadays he flies training planes, but it is not so long since he was engaged in the more lethal and dangerous work of fighting the Japanese. Indeed, it was in those days that he met Margie, for she was then married to Rod, the writer-turned-Squadron-Leader who was Alec's best friend, and whom all the men worshipped. Rod was shot down, 'missing, presumed dead'. But that was three years ago, and now after a year in which Margie has found new happiness in a second marriage, the agony and unhappiness of those days lies behind them; they drink gaily to the future. But can they quite escape the past so easily? What if, fantastically, Rod should prove to be still alive?'
