The novel is set in the West of England, over the course of one week in January 1942. Set against the background of a decaying English country-house tradition, the story follows Valentine Arbell and her two daughters, as they struggle to stand up for their existing lifestyle. Primarily a drama of character, events move swiftly under the compulsion of war conditions, and decisions are forced upon them all.
