Laura is still not over her split from for­mer boyfriend OLIVER EVE­SHAM, whose work as a war cor­re­spon­dent came be­tween them. Oliver reap­pears in her life and at­tempts to rekin­dle their re­la­tion­ship, with lit­tle suc­cess.

He then re­ceives an ur­gent phone call from his step­sis­ter in­form­ing him that his step­fa­ther, WIL­LIAM COLLINGSWOOD, the owner of the pub­lish­ing house, is gravely ill.

He agrees to re­turn to Aus­tralia to be with his fam­ily.

Laura set­tles in for her long trip, and is sur­prised to see Oliver in the seat op­po­site . . .
