I am scarily enthusiastic about this book! Crisply, ironically and darkly funny, the story of flawed people haphazardly muddling through is heart-warming without being sentimental. A joy! Debby

Description of Crooked Heart

This title was longlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction, 2015. When Noel Bostock - aged ten, no family - is evacuated from London to escape the Blitz, he winds up in St Albans with Vera Sedge - thirty-six, drowning in debts. Always desperate for money, she's unscrupulous about how she gets it. The war's thrown up all manner of new opportunities 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 an idea. But there are plenty of other people making money out of the war and some of them are dangerous. Noel may have been moved to safety, but he isn't actually safe at all...
