'Susan Hill's classic novel Strange Meeting tells of the power of love amidst atrocities.

'He was afraid to go to sleep. For three weeks, he had been afraid of going to sleep . . .'

Young officer John Hilliard returns to his battalion in France following a period of sick leave in England. Despite having trouble adjusting to all the new faces, the stiff and reserved Hilliard forms a friendship with David Barton, an open and cheerful new recruit who has still to be bloodied in battle. As the pair approach the front line, to the proximity of death and destruction, their strange friendship deepens. But each knows that soon they will be separated.'
