If life is cheap, how much is love worth? It's 1914 and young Rose Courtenay has a decision to make.
Please her wealthy parents by marrying the man of their choice - or play her part in the war effort?
The chance to escape proves irresistible and Rose becomes a nurse.
Working in France, she meets Lieutenant Alex Denham, a dark figure from her past.
He's the last man in the world she'd get involved with - especially now he's married.
But in wartime nothing is as it seems. Alex's marriage is a sham and Rose is the only woman he's ever wanted.
As he recovers from his wounds, he sets out to win her trust.
His gift of a silver locket is a far cry from the luxuries she's left behind.
What value will she put on his love?
