The Great War took much more than lives. It robbed a generation of friends, lovers and futures. In Freddie Watson's case, it took his beloved brother and, at times, his peace of mind. Unable to cope with his grief, Freddie has spent much of the time since in a sanatorium.

In the winter of 1928, still seeking resolution, Freddie is travelling through the French Pyrenees - another region that has seen too much bloodshed over the years. During a snowstorm, his car spins off the mountain road. Shaken, he stumbles into the woods, emerging by a tiny village. There he meets Fabrissa, a beautiful local woman, also mourning a lost generation.

Over the course of one night, Fabrissa and Freddie share their stories of remembrance and loss. By the time dawn breaks, he will have stumbled across a tragic mystery that goes back through the centuries.

An easy uncomplicated read reminiscent to my mind of Susan Hill's "The Small Hand". While it was obvious how the story was going to pan out it was still an enjoyable read.

(I didn't bother with the extra tale "La Tombe De Pyrene". I did start it but was irritated by the fact that it was 1891, George was over 21 & his parents were dead, facts which didn't tie in with the tale I just read!)
