"In the summer of 1968--a year of love and hate, of Prague Spring and Cold War winter-- Oxford students James Borthwick and Eleanor Pike set out to hitchhike across Europe. Having reached Southern Germany, they decide on a whim to visit Czechoslovakia, where Alexander Dubc̆ek's "socialism with a human face" is smiling on the world. Meanwhile, Sam Wareham, First Secretary at the British embassy in Prague, is observing developments in the country with both a diplomat's cynicism and a young man's passion.
