Summary
A precocious orphan evacuee and a debt-ridden widow con artist forge an unlikely alliance and take advantage of unscrupulous money-making opportunities in the bombed suburbs of World War II England
Summary
Crooked Heart is a rewarding, addictive read. Orphaned ten-year-old bookworm Noel, sent away to rural St. Albans, finds himself under the reluctant guardianship of Vee, aka Mrs. Vera Sledge. Amidst a chaotic background of bombings and uncertain futures, Vee and Noel gradually form a powerful bond. I recommend this darkly humorous, honest, and complex story. It is book club heaven. -- Janet Schneider for LibraryReads
