The Way We Were

Posted on: 10 July 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

A remote country house conceals a tragic family secret.

In the middle of a treacherous snow storm Julia receives an unexpected visitor to her isolated country home.

It is late, too late for strangers to be roaming the wilderness of Bodmin Moor.

Except to Julia’s shock the person at her door is Toggy, her dearest friend, alone and desperately seeking help.

A distressed tiggy, her partner tragically died in an accident, is welcomed into Julia’s warm and chaotic family.

From that hopeless night she starts to live again and await the birth of her child – a new start to move on from the heartbreak.

For almost thirty years Toggy’s traumatic history remains unspoken but, as her son prepares to become a father himself, the next generation discovers that there are secrets from the past that must be uncovered.
