Here is a tale of a family dealing with the death of their
father, a son who goes to court for his inheritance, a son
who agonizes over his fatherâ€™s deathbed confession, a
daughter who falls in love, a daughter who becomes involved
in the abolition movement, and a daughter sacrificing
herself for her husband.
Here is what sounds for all the world like an enjoyable
Victorian novel, perhaps by Anthony Trollopeâ€¦except that
everyone in the story is a dragon, red in tooth and claw.
Here are politics and train stations, churchmen and family
retainers, courtship, and country housesâ€¦in which, on the
death of an elder, family members gather to eat the body of
the deceased. In which societyâ€™s high and mighty members
avail themselves of the privilege of killing and eating the
weaker children, which they do with ceremony and relish,
growing stronger thereby.
You have never read a novel like Tooth and Claw.
