First published in 1975, this story tells of how a chance meeting in a caf?, a piece of grit delicately removed by a gentleman from a lady’s eye give birth to an affair… a brief yet unrelenting emotional tug-of-war between two people whose spontaneous desire clashes head-on with the ‘facts’ of their existence.

There is Anna, married to Graham and happily content with her home life and two children. There is Alec, trapped in a loveless marriage to cool, uninvolved Melanie, looking to his work as a doctor for fulfillment.

Between them a flame is kindled that splendidly ignites a passion way beyond the well-constructed limits of their imaginations. Then comes the test. Can they transform their dream into a lasting love or must it founder on the hard rocks of reality?

Brief Encounter is also a major film starring Sophia Loren and Richard Burton
