This is a well-told story about an orphan in England during WW II. It's got lots of turns and the characters are very well developed. It's a page-turner (I read it in a few sittings). If you like character interaction and a bit of intrigue, this one's for you.
I and my wife both really enjoyed this little book. The author captures the dialect and speech patterns of London perfectly and the story is set in interesting periods both during WW II and immediately thereafter. The little plot twists and turns will keep you guessing right to the end and, I've got to admit, neither my wife nor I guessed how it would all come out until the author told us. I highly recommend this very interesting story.
