My Wonderful Brief Encounter

1942: in war-torn London sixteen-year-old Deborah aspires to be a ‘modern girl’, a movie star, or a female spy. When she falls in love with James her future does indeed change forever, but in unexpected ways. Two betrayals lead to a tragedy which casts Deborah into an emotional trap that affects the rest of her life. 2013: Sebastien is clearing out the house of his recently deceased grandmother, Deborah, and finds intriguing fragments of a life which makes him realise he never really knew her. Who exactly was the optimistic, adventurous young woman his difficult grandmother had once been? 'My Wonderful Brief Encounter' is a family drama exploring the elements in people’s lives which others often don’t know about, and how certain decisions are crossroads which can change an entire course of someone’s life. It is a story of impossible love and loss, structured around the men who enter and leave Deborah’s fragile life. In the words of one character from the book, “our secrets make us who we are.”
