Since the death of their mother, Duncan disapproves of his father Daniel’s drinking and the way in which his erratic behaviour is tearing the Chadwick family apart. His siblings in turn disapprove when Duncan’s pious teetotalling is channelled into the burgeoning local Temperance movement, under the guidance of Joyce. His earnest preaching on the evils of drink is a particular embarrassment for twin brother Fraser, Duncan’s junior by half an hour.
