Mrs Stanbury’s cottage, situated as it was at the end of one of Clovelly’s few side streets, was comparatively peaceful for the Collins. Two things served to mar their quietude. Firstly, that autumn, Mrs Stanbury’s married daughter came from Swansea to take up residence in the third bedroom at the back of the house, for the duration of the hostilities. If that was not bad enough, with her came her infant son, Stanley, who was given to raucous night-time wails. These nocturnal disturbances, left Edward trauma-struck, undoing the benefits of their first months in the serenity of Clovelly; months that had soothed and nurtured, as Amelia had hoped they might.

Then there was the family in the adjoining cottage. The husband and a son, who seemed a little simple, worked a fishing boat. Apparently, the eldest son was away at sea but there were several younger children and an older daughter who was in service elsewhere in the village; she visited occasionally, when she had a half day. Edward had tried to claim some sort of ownership of the family, dogging the footsteps of the father, Albert, badgering him with questions about fishing, expressing opinions on matters of the sea about which he knew little and about which the canny fisherman knew everything.

Mrs Stanbury’s cottage, situated as it was at the end of one of Clovelly’s few side streets, was comparatively peaceful for the Collins. Two things served to mar their quietude. Firstly, that autumn, Mrs Stanbury’s married daughter came from Swansea to take up residence in the third bedroom at the back of the house, for the duration of the hostilities. If that was not bad enough, with her came her infant son, Stanley, who was given to raucous night-time wails. These nocturnal disturbances, left Edward trauma-struck, undoing the benefits of their first months in the serenity of Clovelly; months that had soothed and nurtured, as Amelia had hoped they might.

Then there was the family in the adjoining cottage. The husband and a son, who seemed a little simple, worked a fishing boat. Apparently, the eldest son was away at sea but there were several younger children and an older daughter who was in service elsewhere in the village; she visited occasionally, when she had a half day. Edward had tried to claim some sort of ownership of the family, dogging the footsteps of the father, Albert, badgering him with questions about fishing, expressing opinions on matters of the sea about which he knew little and about which the canny fisherman knew everything.

Watching from the upstairs window, Amelia’s stomach knotted as she witnessed Edward being rejected ignored and ridiculed by the villagers. She flinched as Albert and his son hurried down the street with their heads bowed, as if they were trying to avoid Edward’s importunities. It wasn’t that they meant to be cruel, they had a living to earn and could find no common ground with a “blow-in” from up country. Edward even attempted to engage the oldest daughter, Daisy, in conversation when he spotted her visiting the family. He couldn’t seem to grasp that it might be inappropriate to accost a young, unmarried woman in this way. Edward spoke fondly of Daisy to Amelia, describing her as ‘the flower of the flock’ and ‘his Marguerite’. Amelia knew better than to be jealous. She understood that the feelings that Edward had for the young woman were not sexual; he would have been mortified if anyone had suggested that this was the case. Daisy was enigmatic, earthy, far removed from the porcelain, middle class women with whom Edward had come in to contact in his previous life. His regard for Daisy was a chivalric respect for the unattainable, the other-worldly and not that of a married man looking for a diversion.

The mother, Polly, was a prickly, unpredictable woman. In an unusually gossipy mood, Mrs Stanbury volunteered some information about her neighbour.

‘Well, you’ll find her a little odd,’ she said, adding, ‘she’s got worse since her lad died back along and she frets about their Leonard being at sea. His ship was torpedoed you know.’

Amelia did not know but Polly was not alone in having a family that was being moulded and defined by the impact of the war. It was a
