War has come to England, and the Furys soldier on Desmond Fury calls himself a working man, but it has been years since he put in a full shift. A brutally arrogant union leader, he longs to escape the working… class and sees World War II as his ticket to better things. He is at a banquet for war recruiters, savoring the atmosphere of refinement, when a call comes from the hospital that drags him right back into the mud. His mother, the indomitable Mrs. Fury, has collapsed. After years of holding the family together--and making life hell for everyone in it--she lies in the hospital, near death. But Mrs. Fury is not finished yet. As Desmond fights for respectability and her other children wage battles of their own, Mrs. Fury will do what she can to keep her family intact--even if it kills her. Our Time Is Gone is the third book of James Hanley's acclaimed Furys Saga.
