In 1945, newlywed Isabel Carey arrives in a Yorkshire town with her husband Philip. One cold winter night, Isabel finds an old RAF greatcoat in the back of a cupboard. Once wrapped in the coat she is beset by dreams. And not long afterwards, while her husband is out, she is startled to hear a knock at her window, and to meet the intense gaze of a young Air Force pilot, staring in at her from outside. His name is Alec. As Isabel's initial alarm fades, they begin a delicious affair. But nothing could have prepared her for the truth about Alec's life...
