Publisher's Summary

Ellen Murphy was born to a world of rotting slums and starving children. Determined to escape from poverty and her drunken Irish father, she takes a job as a shop girl on Shoreditch High Street.

David Cheifitz is the only son of devout Jewish parents, David has grown up with his future mapped out. But he is an artist and a rebel. When he falls in love with Ellen Murphy, he turns his back on the old ways. But as time passes, life starts to get in the way: religious differences, rejection by David's parents and domestic strife throw up barriers between the newlyweds.

It is only when David is drawn into the Great War do they realise how precious their marriage is and by then it may be too late.

A Time to Love.

A little slow to start but excellently narated and captured by Cat Gould. EXCELLENT LISTENING and captivating of a very historic time of the horrors of war and struggles of an earlier generation.
