James considers himself lucky. In Manchester, 1864, at the age of fourteen, he has at least a pair of boots to his name. Despite not having enough money to watch the show, James lands a job at the circus, changing his life and identity forever. And so begins the journey of James, aka Andrew of The Flying Durants, acclaimed trapeze artist and contortionist and the three generations that follow.

Brimming with British working-class values, the saga takes us from one courtship to the next christening with ease. Through young love, loss and hardship, the Durants show sheer grit conquering the challenges of the times to emerge victorious on the right side of World War II in 1945.

If you're looking for a bite-sized family saga, look no further; Sometimes There's Sunshine Sometimes There's Snow has it all.
