A historical romance and yet much more. Two men, beset by worry become towers of strength when the women they love are distressed or endangered. Two women, friends and yet dependent on each other through the tragedies of life. Each of them falls in love with the strong, dependable man who loves her. Their love story is intertwined with the effects of failed mental health in their families; and the desperation of lost jobs and starving people caused by the mass production of factories. This story is not one to be missed.
