Storyline

In 1920, John Bannerman and his wife Sarah open the Grand, a lavish hotel in Manchester. However they soon realize that the hotel is in dire financial straits, as the book-keeper committed suicide after embezzling large sums of money. To help out, John's brother Marcus, a business-man, is brought in as a third partner to raise money. He has a cynical if perpetual girl-friend, Ruth Manning, but he also has a history with Sarah, which he is keen to rekindle if he is to save the Grand. Written by don @ minifie-1
