Yesterday was Alice’s wedding day. She is thousands of miles away from home when she wakes to see a wave on the horizon, taller than her guest house on Kanyakumari beach. Her husband is nowhere to be seen. On the other side of the world is Alice’s mother, Violet. Forced to leave the idyllic Wiltshire village, Imber, after it was requisitioned by the army, Violet is haunted by the shadow of the man she loved and the home that lies in ruins. As Alice searches for her husband, Violet is compelled to return to Imber to discover why she abandoned her great love.
