Love, as everyone acknowledges, makes the world go round. Fleeting, Illicit, Enduring. Love in a Time of Innocence chronicles all these emotions through an adaptation of No More an Island, a novel based on the years 1920 to 1941. Told mainly through dialogue, this is a story you will find fascinating as it weaves through the lives of “ordinary” folk who explore the mysteries of love with its many facets.

Jake Johnson saw her and turned his head smartly to the left, flashing his best big smile.
