Description - In the Dark by Deborah Moggach

Historical, domestic and sexy like Moggach's bestselling TULIP FEVER, this is a tantalising, page-turning story of war, meat and desire on the home front, set in South London's dark and dirty wartime streets during WWI 916, pretty young Eithne Clay runs a shabby genteel South London boarding house while her gentle, dreamy husband is off at the War. Her 14 year old son Ralph dotes on his mother, but has adolescent thoughts he d rather hide from her. Winnie, the young maid, is a homely, goodhearted country girl, rejected by Archie, the cheeky butcher s boy before he too is called up. When the dreaded telegram arrives at the house... things turn from difficult to desperate for the two young women. The lodgers are a curious but necessary burden the Spooner family, with shell-shocked husband, sad wife and tiny, knowing daughter; Boyce Argyle, man about town and hero to young Ralph but recently missing; and blind Alwyne Flyte, communist and cynic, victim of a gas attack in the trenches. And 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
