A Time to Keep
by Morgan Cheshire
England, 1909. Young lovers Ben and Matthew leave the workhouse to find their places in the world. Luck brings jobs and somewhere to live, but their security is soon threatened by war. Ben is eager to go fight for his country, but Matthew is ineligible for military service. He must stay at home, his life disintegrating – until, years later, a stranger helps him learn to live for the future again.
