Summary
A prequel to the Grantchester series follows the life, loves, and losses of young Sidney Chambers in postwar London, where, as a traumatized veteran, he navigates devastating survivor guilt and a haphazard religious calling.
1938. Young Sidney Chambers is dancing the quickstep with Amanda Kendall at her brother Robert's birthday party at the Caledonian Club. No one can believe, on this golden evening, that there could ever be another war. Seven years later, Sidney has gained a Military Cross and lost his best friend on the battlefields of Italy. Sidney, carrying a terrible, secret guilt, must decide what to do with the rest of his life. To the incredulity of his family and the derision of his friends, Sidney must now negotiate his path to God: the course of which, much like true love, never runs smooth. -- adapted from jacket
