New Neighbours for Coronation Close

It’s 1936. The old king has died. A new king takes the throne. Hunger marches are still happening. Like many people Jenny and her family are struggling. They live in a tenement in the centre of Bristol dating from the Middle Ages. Water is down flights of stairs from a pump in the backyard. Their rooms in the shared house are lit by gas. Is it too much to hope for better? Things begin to get better when Roy gets more work, but the world is on the brink of even greater upheaval. So too in Jenny’s life. Is it so wrong to yearn for a house with a garden – or indeed for a meaningful relationship? Things don’t change much – until they move to Coronation Close.
