  • Information


In August 1914, the lives of two young people seem mapped out in front of them.

Frank, happily employed as a bank teller, is to marry his fiancee in the spring.

Emily is also to marry around the same time. Both are natives of Jarrow. Their homes are about a ten-minute walk away - but they have never met. Then, everything changes. Carried along with the jingoistic national celebration that follows the declaration of war, Frank enlists in the army, leaving his family and fiancee behind.

Shortly after this, a devastating loss leaves a massive void in Emily's life.

To help fill that void, she volunteers with the Voluntary Aid Detachment. By the end of summer 1916, both Frank and Emily are serving in France.

Their lives intersect twice, once in France and once in Jarrow.

After they meet, the destiny for one is tragedy, and for the other, hope.
