Other pupils soon noted the developing friendship, and innuendo and rumour quickly abounded. But against the odds, Paul successfully allayed the concerns of the school authorities, and the friendship was allowed to continue. Love flourished and Paul was eventually accepted by Eloise’s parents as a prospective son-in-law.However, following the sudden death of his wife and facing the prospect of a lonely future, Eloise’s father forbade her from further contact with Paul. Paul was killed in a car crash soon after, thus ending all prospect of a future reconciliation. There would now be no wedding, no children… Eloise’s life seemed over.Now middle-aged, and with a string of unsuccessful relationships behind her, Eloise is still emotionally handicapped by the loss of her unfulfilled teenage love. Try as she might, she cannot put it behind her and move on. But then, following the departure of her present partner and a failed attempt at suicide, she is taken back in time to the day on which Paul was killed. Initially confused, she overcomes her anxiety and makes her way to the place where her father had prevented her being on that fateful day. And here, in an anachronistic reality, the two lovers meet once more. But can she prevent the car crash, can she save him from his preordained fate, or is she merely a spectator, an impotent observer who cannot influence destiny? Maybe she can go with him in the car, both of them die together… Or is there another reason for her journey into the past?
