The First World War touched the lives of millions. But THE LOVE OF A BROTHER is a very personal story of how the hostilities affected one large, close-knit family from London’s East End in the early 1900s.
It is told with loving affection through the eyes of one man whose seemingly unbreakable bond with his brother was shattered on August 13th, 1917 in one of the most ferocious front line battles.
That was the tragic day Royal Fusilier Fred Cearns died while fighting for his country.
This heartfelt tale of courage and honour also serves as a fascinating social history commentary of what family life was like in East London at the end of the 19th century.
This story is very much about the Great War of 1914 to 1918. It is therefore appropriate that a military charity should benefit and
HELP for HEROES (Registered Charity no. 1120920) has been chosen. H4H provide practical direct support for wounded men and women of the Armed Forces. All net proceeds received by the publisher will be will be donated to HELP for HEROES
