There is just one week until Kate and Geoff Mercer’s forty-fifth wedding anniversary and the planning for the party is going well. Comfortably off, Left-wing, childless, this provincial couple have a week to go before the much-postponed occasion: theoretically a week of planning, dress purchasing, a bit of social fretting. But then a letter arrives for the husband. The body of Geoff’s first love has been discovered, frozen and preserved in the icy glaciers of the Swiss Alps. This event has rarely been mentioned between them but now old memories are stirred up that call into question everything that they have taken for granted.
