When Noel Bostock—aged ten, no family—is evacuated from London to escape the Nazi bombardment, he lands in a suburb northwest of the city with Vera Sedge—a thirty-six-year-old widow drowning in debts and dependents. Always desperate for money, she’s unscrupulous about how she gets it.
Eccentrically educated and raised with a disdain for authority, Noel has little in common with other children, and even less with the impulsive Vee, who hurtles from one self-made crisis to the next. The war’s provided unprecedented opportunities for making money, but what Vee needs is a cool head and the ability to make a plan. On her own, she’s a disaster. With Noel, she’s a team.
Together, they cook up a scheme. . . .

    I had read positive reviews of 'Crooked Heart' and was not disappointed. It is a totally charming story well told and with believable ups and downs for the characters. Anyone who is at all interested in Great Britain during WW II would certainly learn new information. Try it, you'll like it.
