Cécile, a stylish forty-seven-year-old, has spent the weekend visiting her parents in a provincial town southeast of Paris. By early Monday morning, she's exhausted. These trips back home are always stressful and she settles into a train compartment with an empty seat beside her. But it's soon occupied by a man she instantly recognizes: Philippe Leduc, with whom she had a passionate affair that ended in her brutal humiliation thirty years ago. In the fraught hour and a half that ensues, their express train hurtles towards the French capital. Cécile and Philippe undertake their own face to face journey--In silence? What could they possibly say to one another?--with the reader gaining entrée to the most private of thoughts. This is a psychological thriller about past romance, with all its pain and promise.

So awkward - sitting beside a former lover from 20 years ago on a train, wondering if the other recognizes you. Each one goes through their memories in the story. Quick read and easily possible in real life!

Imagine having a man who broke your heart sit next to you on the train twenty years latter. You both are aware of the other but do you acknowledge it? What thoughts, regrets go through your head? A great wee read.

Beautifully introspective, this book explores the development of individual's characters in a very compact book. I couldn't set it down, and continued to reflect on it for days. A must read!
