My favourite of the Dudley Sisters sagas was China Blue about the SOE operations during WWII and to my delight, this novel continues the story of Claire and Mitch in the years following. To say that it has a corker of a plot is an understatement. After having been on a trip to Canada for Mitch to receive treatment for what was then known as shell shock (now known as PTSD), Mitch disappears moments before they are due to leave for England. Claire suspects that Mitch has been having an affair with someone called Simone, whose name he has been calling out in his sleep so decides to try and find him, a trip which involves returning to France. What follows turns out to be a corker of a plot with a dramatic ending.
