Anyone know what 'limeroom' is?
I am now reading a 2008 novel by John Burnside, the award-winning Scottish poet/novelist. The narrator 'I' killed a boy, who had pestered and bullied 'me', by luring the boy to his death in the 'limeroom' that once was 'my' secret hiding place and sanctuary.
Is the 'limeroom' a kind of stockyard where powdered lime and/or fertilizer are in stock ? It doesn't seem to be a small house built of lime stone.
I would really appreciate your help.
