Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Ella has lived in the East End of London all her life and when her husband is determined to move to Epsom to be near the racecourse he frequents and loves, Ella's refusal to move with him breaks up their marriage. It's been a tempestuous marriage - sometimes they had money, often not and when he was doing well, he liked the ladies...
Once the marriage breaks up, Ella loses the will to keep smart, trim and fit. Until her mother steps in, determined to pick up the pieces. And it works - Ella gets a job as barmaid in the British Legion club which gives her an income and a social life. She begins to take pride in her appearance again and, when Dennis turns up for a drink one night, he is taken by surprise - and remembers what attracted him to her in the first place. Can Dennis win back his wife? Ella has to decide if Dennis can or has changed his wheeler-dealer ways...
