Rachel Morgan arrives in the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter, to be reunited with her husband Lewis, a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city. But as they set off for their new home, Rachael is stunned to discover that Lewis has made an unexpected decision: they will have to share the house with the previous owners, a German widow and his problematic daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal.
