Paris 1945. Christiane waits for a ticket to England that will reunite her with her fiance. While she waits, this irrepressible mademoiselle recounts the love story between her – an eccentric, acutely-myopic Parisian – and a tongue-tied English teacher from Staffordshire. From a chance encounter at Cheadle tennis club, their story takes us on to cosmopolitan 1930s Paris before their inevitable separation by war. A separation which she hopes, today, will finally come to an end.

A tender, comical and ultimately poignant portrayal of one woman’s experience of love and war.

“… gathers in both charm and emotional engagement until even a hardened hack may be on the brink of tears. Winsome in all the best ways, this Horton may not be hearing a “Who?” for very long.” ****The Financial Times
