Billy Jacobs was no worse or no better than any other twenty year old. Not exactly lazy he still did little to find employment. Given an ultimatum by his girlfriend, Billy finds work in a local care home. There he befriends Dulcie Gray one of the residents and after taking up the offer to rent her home, dark and tragic secrets that had been hidden for over fifty years begin to emerge. Bells Lane in the beginning is humorous and heart warming but as the story unravels a taboo subject will begin to surface. A subject that has gone on for many years, is widespread today but was prevalent in nineteen forty one. East End characters at their worst and best, with a way of putting things that only a true East Ender can.
