A Time To Love (Ecclesiastes 3.8)

Chapter 1

The wedding invitations had gone out, presents had begun to arrive; there were continued discussions with caterers and florists and final fittings with dressmakers, volunteers co-opted to decorate the church.

“Such a perfect match,” said friends and relatives. “They make an ideal couple.”

Both Isabel’s and Philip’s mothers were delighted. They had been close friends since they had worked together at Bletchley Park during the war. Philip was an agronomist working on his father’s Lincolnshire estate, which it was presumed he would ultimately take over.

Isabel’s family lived fairly nearby in Suffolk, and from childhood, the two families had frequently stayed at each other’s homes or gone on holiday together. Isabel had always been fond of Philip as a brother, whereas, he made no secret of his deep love for her.
