    Set in the 1950s, The Eloquence of Desire explores the conflicts in family relationships caused by obsessive love, the lost innocence of childhood and the terror of the Communist insurgency in Malaya.
    Richly descriptive, the story told by Amanda Sington-Williams unfolds as George is posted to the tropics 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 daughter 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.
    The Eloquence of Desire is written in Sington-Williams’ rhythmical prose.
