Hopping : Charting the real life fate of the East End Crommelin family from the turn of the century to modern times, Hopping explores the bonds that hold families fast to one another. Depicting a time when people made much of simple pleasures, kept each other's confidences, however unwelcome, and held loyalty to one's own as paramount, Melanie McGrath ultimately questions what it means to love in the most profound and old-fashioned sense. Hopping, thoughtful and beautifully rendered, set against the backdrop of a disappearing East End landscape soon to be erased by war and the all-consuming social change that followed in its wake, captures the essence of ordinary family lives during an extraordinary period in London's past.
