520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc "Letters from the suitcase is the poignant and detailed wartime correspondence between David and Mary Francis from 1938 to 1943. Mary was originally from Dublin and only twenty-one when she met and fell in love with the privately educated, nineteen-year-old David Francis, a Christian Scientist. Their affair was passionate and in a swing of disgust at the growing rise of fascism and the Nazi party in Europe, they became active in North London left-wing circles. Against the wishes of their parents, they lived together in secret. These letters reveal their love and longing, their lives working as a secretary at Bletchley Park and as a young officer in action on the other side of the world, and later, Mary's experience of bringing up a small baby alone in London. David was to die in India, five years after their meeting, though his letters continued to reach Mary long after the event. At the heart, this is the story of a short but rewarding love. It is also the story of a father that Rosheen Finnigan never knew, and a fascinating social history"--Back cover.
