This book is a compilation of two stories about the Parsons family of Paradise Court in the east End of London and, more particularly about 'Duke' Parsons, landlord of the 'Duke of Wellington'. 'Paradise Court' begins in 1913 and is a saga of everyday life against the backdrop of the Great War. 'After Hours' starts in 1923 and is a story based around 'Duke' losing his license whilst his daughter Sadie now a beautiful young woman draws the family into heartache and tragedy. A superb family drama.
