Summary
South London, 1916. Eithne Clay runs a shabby-genteel boarding house while her husband is off at the War. When the dreaded telegram arrives at the house, things turn from difficult to desperate. Then along comes the butcher, Neville Turk, big handsome ladies' man, irresistible for his meat, money and brutish confidence, who throws flighty Eithne into a turmoil but has sinister plans of his own
Summary
In 1916, Eithne Clay runs a shabby South London boarding house while her husband is off at the War. Her 14 year old son Ralph dotes on his mother, but has thoughts he'd rather hide from her. Winnie, the young maid, is a homely, goodhearted country girl. The lodgers are a curious but necessary burden. They are all in the dark, with their dreams, secrets and fantasies. Electric light, new to their world, may be a boon but it reveals both grime and secrets. News of the war is never far away and casts a long shadow. Life is tough on the home front and they're all making do and working the system in different ways, sometimes comic, sometimes tragic and very human.
