Living Memory is the bitter sweet story of two couples who live at the same address, in different times in history, and are struggling to cope with a personal tragedy.
It is 2018, and Jo has just moved into her dream cottage with her loving husband. But what is she running from? Back in 1945, Ruby battles to save her marriage to Sam, after a family tragedy threatens to tear them apart.
Will the two women find in each other the strength they need to survive?
Can friendship really traverse the ages?
