We Are Not Alone

I've heard the 4 minute Radio version of this "agony" routine. It plays better.

Anyway- seeing the short today got me interested in the novelette- written in 1937. Brilliant but naïve country doctor David Newcome courts tragedy when he invites a stranger into his home In the English factory town of Calderbury, few figures are as respected as the ?little doctor? David Newcome. His talents as a surgeon attract more renown than anything else associated with the tiny village. Kind to a fault, Dr. Newcome sees no problem with housing Leni, a nineteen-year-old dancer from Germany adrift in England?even over the objections of his strong-willed wife, Jessica. Soon Newcome?s family is torn asunder as their country and the world outside are drawn into war. We Are Not Alone is a poignant portrait of one family?s trials and tribulations on the eve of the First World War.
