Summary

Miranda Lovage and her mother have a blazing row when Arabella tells her daughter that she can no longer afford their present lifestyle. Miranda goes to bed angry and upset. When she awakes next morning, however, it is to find that her mother has disappeared.

Miranda raises the alarm but everyone is baffled, and when searches fail to discover Arabella's whereabouts, Miranda is forced to live with her Aunt Vi and cousin Beth, who resent her presence and treat her badly. Miranda is miserable, but when she meets a neighbour, Steve, things begin to look up and Steve promises to help his new friend in her search, and does so until war intervenes…

Very different to the normal war time story

Almost like 3 stories in one. There is a story that runs through this book as well as a different story that emerges. Very good. Well read!

Started off good but disappointing ending

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The beginning promised a good story but a third of the way through the story got stale and I found myself disliking the main character also I found the ending unsatisfactory as if the author couldn't think how to finish the story all in all an OK book
