Troubles (Abridged)
Share this book    
The listener is taken back to July 1919, when the 'Major' is visiting the Hotel Majestic in County Cork, Ireland to reunite with his fiancee Angela, the Protestant proprietor Edward Spencer's daughter. The lovers met in Brighton during the War and have since only corresponded long-distance. The welcome he receives is not quite what he expected. He quickly becomes sucked into the political and sociological ethos of the hotel and its inhabitants, and the story builds tantalisingly until its inevitable dramatic conclusion.
