With a title from Wilfred Owen’s “Strange Meeting”, Justin Go weaves two tales, one of young American Tristan who will inherit the sizable estate of Ashley Walshington a British mountaineer who died on Mt. Everest in 1924, if he can prove his grandmother was related to Imogen Soames-Anderson, and  the other, a love story of Imogen and Ashley, who is deployed to the Western Front in WWI, and never marries the love of his life. Go writes a haunting love story set against the darkness of war.
