When 18-year-old Peter Granby finds himself lying on a heap of rubble after losing his mother, his home, and a fight, he turns to wealthy widow Eileen Farnsfield, whose mother he had comforted as she lay dying on the sidewalk outside the factory where he works. Eileen gives him a job as caretaker of her seaside cottages, and their relationship takes its predictable course. Yet he is left wondering, Ẁhere was the rest of it?'' In the aftermath of the novel's violent climax, Peter's horizon has cleared of the dreams that clouded his vision. Sillitoe's accomplishment is to go beyond the stereotypes of proletarian youth and sex-starved middle-aged woman by teaching the former sympathy and teaching us sympathy for the latter. The lesson that society is destiny is taught with sorrow rather than bitterness
