Spring, 1917, and war haunts the Cornish coastal village of Zennor: ships are being sunk by U-boats, strangers are treated with suspicion, and newspapers are full of spy stories.

They befriend Clare Coyne, a young artist struggling to console her beloved cousin, John William, who is on leave from the trenches and suffering from shell-shock. Yet the dark tide of gossip and innuendo means that Zennor is neither a place of recovery nor of escape . . .

From AudioFile:

ZENNOR IN DARKNESS is the first novel by Helen Dunmore. This melancholy tale is set in the Cornish country of England during the bleakest days of WWI. Detailing the survival of those remaining at home during the war, the story follows the life of young artist Clare Coyne and her associates as they try to cope with the difficulties of country life during the European conflict, including local gossip, desertion, desolation, and friendships. D.H. Lawrence and his German wife, Frieda, are living in Zennor and are the objects of local scorn and treachery. Reading with rich, British eloquence, Jenny Agutter enables this chronicle to smoothly shift from individuals as diverse as Frieda and D.H. Lawrence to the local clergy and Clare.
