      She grew jealous of the attention Synge paid to the younger woman. Pamela Horn brings to life the daily round of chores and relaxation in manor house, rectory, farm and cottage.

      We hear of the barbarism and "rapacity of the conquering Mohammedans" then meet Colonel Herncastle after we have been told that the British army has converted the city's Moslem defenders into a "heap" of corpses. A few years ago, I found a sheaf of them in the bottom of a drawer in that house in Enniscorthy where they all lived.
