This is the story of two young reporters who meet in a besieged city, surrounded by bombs, death and destruction, and fall in love. Years later - after endless phone calls, secret trysts, break-ups and countless wars - they arrive in Paris to begin a new life together. But, having met in another world, ordinary, civilian life doesn't come easily. The difficult journey that follows as they experience joy and terror at becoming parents, battle with alcoholism and post-traumatic stress and di Giovanni's determination to find a home and security in the world, leads to an understanding of love, marriage and redemption.
