A portrait of a turbulent and beautiful seventy-year-long marriage forged during the onset of
World War II.
Born in the 1920s on a working-class London street, Harry Miles wins a scholarship and grows
into adulthood as a sensitive man, torn between his love for poetry and the immediate demands
of the world around him. When he marries the magnetic and demanding Evelyn amongst the
outbreak of war, his capacity to love is increasingly tested—up to and beyond when she
abandons him on the cusp of death.
An unconventional love story, harrowing and deeply tender, Dear Evelyn studies two people
who permanently shape each other over a shared lifetime.
