They were both children of poverty, born into the dark slums of East London. Yet their worlds could hardly have been more different. Eric De Milo blessed with a loving Italian family and an artistic... More > gift that gave him a chance for a better life. On the other hand, Helena Whitman who knew little of love or kindness, her gift was for survival. Then astonishingly, love blossoms between them, and for a while, it seems that nothing can tear them apart. However, can their love endure when it separates Eric from the world he cherishes?

These are the places, which barely sustain the life of immigrants through the ages. The people who dreamed of a better life, in a civilised European country, the Empire the storytellers spoke about... More > in the corners of their muddy market places, where the streets of London are paved with gold. This is the infamous east end side of the notorious square mile of the City of London, where the rich get richer by the minute and the newcomers of the third world tighten their belts even more, in the hope that they will feel the hunger less. This is the new generation of the new arrival of yet another race.
