Michael & Maria
by Emma Stephenson
Folkestone, Kent, 1932: An impecunious yet ambitious young Irishman and a charming Italian beauty meet and fall in love. Ignoring family dissension and very different upbringings, they marry and settle down to raise a God-fearing British family. But a world war is brewing…. This tale of roots, upheaval, divisions overcome, living, dying, and a 60-year marriage is ultimately a story of true love.
