Product description
Drawing deeply from Lily Tobias’ own experience, this is the moving story about the treatment of conscientious objectors during the World War I. The spoiled daughter of a Cardiff industrialist, Eunice is outraged when her teacher husband refuses to fight. Her refusal to visit him in jail has disastrous consequences and repercussions which still affect her as another war threatens. First published in 1933, this novel was radical political writing for its time, making the suffering of pacifists, rather than the suffering of soldiers, its central concern.
