"Born between the wars on a working-class London street, Harry Miles wins a scholarship and a chance to escape his station, but discovers instead that poetry is what offers him real direction. While searching for more of it he meets Evelyn Hill on the steps of Battersea Library. The two fall in love as the world prepares once again for war, but their capacity to care for each other over the ensuing decades becomes increasingly tested. Twisting and startling, harrowing and deeply tender, Dear Evelyn explores how two very different people come together to shape and reshape each other over a lifetime. It is a compelling and unconventional love story that will leave its mark on any reader who has ever loved"--Page [2] of cover.

The story of a marriage - from the first flush or romance to old age. I found myself engrossed in the rhythm as well as the feelings of the husband and wife, in part because the author was so direct and nearly ruthless in describing behaviours, comments, thoughts and feelings.
