Summary
South London, 1916. Eithne Clay runs a ramshackle boarding house while her husband is off at war. She and her young son struggle to bring the comforts of home to a cast of characters even the war effort doesn't want, including a cynical veteran swayed by Communist propaganda and an old woman who eats everything in sight, despite her broken dentures. Life is difficult enough when Eithne learns that her husband is dead. Everything is transformed with the arrival of butcher Neville Turk, a handsome and burly ladies' man, who brings some much-needed excitement to Eithne's life--and some much-needed nourishment to the boarders. The house bursts to life with electricity--real and metaphorical--and the previously underfed residents chow down on fatty lamb chops. But what darkness will be revealed in this newly lit world?
