It is October 1918 and London is gathering in its dead. For Henry Speake of Speake & Son Undertakers laying to rest the shattered young bodies of those sent home from the Front to die has become a grimly familiar reality. But what he is seeing now, as influenza claims its victims with increasing speed and force, is something different; for the first time in his life, Henry feels afraid of death. Unable to share his fears with his waspish, disapproving sisters, Henry turns to Mrs Allen Thompson, a recently widowed school teacher, so beginning a friendship which gradually, stumblingly, pulls them in a direction neither has been prepared for.
