Their white landlady, Queenie, befriends them until her husband returns from combat with issues of his own to resolve.

    Hi there,

    My name’s Becky and I work at Radio Devon – we’re looking at book clubs/book sales/book shops today, and I was hoping to speak to a Devon based book club member/leader to talk about the last books you bought and read, and the workings of a book club – If you’re available, please can you send me an email, or give me a call on 01752234533

    Thank you,
