The war, however, claims the lives of both their parents, and they are rehomed once more at Barnardo's until separated by adoption. George Seagrave adopts Richard and takes him to his family in the country, where Richard has to adapt to strict Victorian rules. Billy is claimed by a poor, childless couple in the East End.
As they grow, Billy's dream of becoming a professional boxer vanishes as he develops epilepsy. Bitter and angry, he gets involved in smash-and-grab raids as he promises himself to get out of poverty. He works his way up to become a club owner in the West End. Richard, now a priest, hears about Billy's raids and tries to persuade his brother to give up that lifestyle. It is only when Billy is asked to clear his grandmother's flat - in which he finds a letter that contains a secret - that everything starts to change for both him and Richard.
This is a very powerful novel about family, war, and gangland culture.

Excellent historical fiction
A dramatic story set in wartime and post-war England. Loved the factual account of London during the war. Intriguing idea of how two brothers can lead such opposing lives. A varied soundtrack of modern and classic music makes this a unique, first if its kind audio novel.
