The Crimson Portrait : Spring 1915. On a sprawling country estate not far from London a young woman mourns her husband, fallen on a distant battlefield. The isolated and eerie stillness in which she grieves is shattered as her home is transformed into a bustling military hospital. Unsettled by the intrusion of the injured soldiers, the increasingly fragile widow finds unexpected solace in the company of a wounded officer whose mutilated face, concealed by bandages, she cannot see. Their affair takes an unexpected turn when fate presents her with an opportunity to remake her lover - with the unwitting help of a visionary surgeon and a woman artist - in the image of her lost husband . . .
