'I liked fetching washing from the Moscrops', and my mother liked washing for Mrs Moscrop better than for anybody else.'

William Essex, a successful dramatist and novelist who overcame his humble beginnings in a Manchester slum, trapped in a loveless marriage, lavishes all his attentions upon his son Oliver. His friend Dermot O'Riordon, a fervent Irish patriot and founder of a great London furnishing house is determined that his son, Rory, should dedicate his life to the cause of Irish independence. One night, these two men voice their pledge to give their sons the youth they could never achieve. But the consequences of this simple desire are more tragic than they could have imagined.

Planned upon a great scale, covering the story of two families for the best part of half a century and mounting with ever-increse and sustained tension this is a book of compelling force from bestselling novelist Howard Spring.
