The Eloquence of Desire is written in Sington-Williams’ rhythmical prose. Set in the 1950s, it describes how a family struggles with conflicted relationships in a hostile environment.
Richly descriptive, the story told by Amanda Sington-Williams unfolds as George is posted to Malaya in punishment for an affair with the daughter of his boss. His wife, Dorothy, constrained by social norms, unwillingly accompanies him while their 12 year old child Susan is packed off to boarding school.
Desire and fantasy mix with furtive visits, lies and despair to wreck the family with Dorothy becoming a recluse, George taking a new lover, and Susan punishing herself through self harm.
