|Title:||Time and the Hour|
Beginning just before the outbreak of the First World War, this is the story of the moral values of the age. It is a story of illegitimacy and deception—where a child has to come to terms with discovering who his mother really is. It is a story in which romance is set against the backdrop of the growth of fascism in Europe, where London has become a refuge for persecuted Jews, and where Dunkerley newspaper reporter Joe Morrison has become a thorn in the sides of the European dictators. It is a story in which the looming Second World War and the intrigue leading up to it take on a frightening reality.—Goodreads.com. [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Spring, Howard
Howard Spring (10 February 1889–3 May 1965) was a Welsh author and journalist who wrote in English. He began his writing career as a journalist but from 1934 produced a series of best-selling novels for adults and children. The most successful was Fame Is the Spur, which was later adapted into a film starring Michael Redgrave and, later still a BBC TV series.
Born in Cardiff, the son of a jobbing gardener, Spring was forced to leave school at the age of twelve, when his father died, to start work as an errand boy. He later became an office boy at a firm of chartered accountants in Cardiff Docks and then a messenger and later a reporter at the offices of the South Wales Daily News. In 1911, he moved to the Yorkshire Observer. Spring moved to the Manchester Guardian in 1915 and stayed for over fifteen years. He reported on the First World War and during the conflict worked for the Intelligence Department in France.
Spring was a successful writer, who combined a wide understanding of human character with technical skill as a novelist. His method of composition was painstaking. Each morning he would shut himself in his room and write a thousand words, steadily building up to novels of around 150,000 words. He rarely made major alterations to his writings.
