    romance|women’s fiction|historical novel The Eloquence of Desire is written in Sington-Williams’ haunting 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 the tropics in punishment for an affair with the daughter of his boss. His wife, Dorothy, constrained by social norms, begrudgingly accompanies him while their twelve year old daughter Susan is packed off to boarding school.
    Desire and fantasy mix with furtive visits, lies and despair to turn the family inside out with Dorothy becoming a recluse, George taking a new lover, and Susan punishing herself through self harm.
