About The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro.
This tale is set during Arthurian times and follows Axl and Beatrice, who joined together by their marital love, try to fight against a mist of forgetfulness.  Here is the blurb released from the publishers:
The Romans have long since departed, and Britain is steadily declining into ruin. But at least the wars that once ravaged the country have ceased. 
The Buried Giant begins as a couple, Axl and Beatrice, set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen for years. 
They expect to face many hazards - some strange and other-worldly - but they cannot yet foresee how their journey will reveal to them dark and forgotten corners of their love for one another. 
Sometimes savage, often intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro's first novel in a decade is about lost memories, love, revenge and war.
Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien may also recognise places where Ishiguro has been inspired.
Previous novels by Kazuo Ishiguro include Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day.
