The Sheridan brothers and their women were passionate, spirited youths, loving the golden splendor of their lives int he village of Tarrant Royal. But the sun was going down on England and the dark shadows of the First World War were racing to claim them...
Rex-the hell for leather charmer who found glory and terror over the skies of Europe.
Roland-the promising surgeon who answered the hints of cowardice by plunging into France's savage trench war.
Chris-the young scholar who fled a stiffling marriage to face a fearful destiny at the Gallipoli invasion. And their women:
Tessa-who loved Roland for his quiet courage, and suffered for her own.
Marion-Chris's wife who kept the homefires burning, and nursed a wounded dream of happiness.
Laura-the seductive flame haired showgirl whose love for Rex would save him or destroy him...
Amidst the clamor of the war, they lived boldly, violently, desperately for the hope of a bright tommorrow.
