SHORTLISTED FOR HWA Crown Awards 2021'A book to be treasured and returned to again and again' The Independent'Funny, moving and utterly life-enhancing' Daily MailWith caustic wit and artful storytelling, Lissa Evans elegantly summons a time when the world could finally hope to emerge from the chaos of war. ___It's late 1944. Hitler's rockets are slamming down on London with vicious regularity and it's the coldest winter in living memory.

Allied victory is on its way, but it's bloody well dragging its feet. In a large house next to Hampstead Heath, Vee Sedge is just about scraping by, with a herd of lodgers to feed, and her young charge Noel ( almost fifteen ) to clothe and educate.
