Set in the twilight years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, Of Air and Angels tells the story of the illicit, and passionate love affair between the poet John Donne, and, against all odds, his eventual marriage to Ann More. Deeply atmospheric, the characters, the buidlings, the sights and the smells of 16th century London, are vividly brought to life alongside that of a very rural existence at Loseley Park in Surrey, ancestral home of the More family.
