‘A beautiful exploration of family, love and loss across the generations. Fresh, fun… I didn’t want it to end.’ Gemma Chan How far would you travel to find a love lost in time?1927, East London. The first time Tommy and Peggy meet, they are nine years old. He is lost in London’s original Chinatown, panicking as he struggles to escape the tangle of Limehouse streets, with their road signs in Chinese characters that he can’t decipher. ‘Where do you come from?’ Peggy asks him.
