Intimidated by her father, the rector of Knype Hill, Dorothy performs
her submissive roles of dutiful daughter and bullied housekeeper. Her
thoughts are taken up with the costumes she is making for the church
school play, by the hopelessness of preaching to the poor and by debts
she cannot pay in 1930s Depression England. Suddenly her routine
shatters and Dorothy finds herself down and out in London.
She is wearing silk stockings, has money in her pocket and cannot remember her name. Orwell leads us through a landscape of unemployment, poverty and hunger, where Dorothy's faith is challenged by a social reality that changes her life.
