The RPL Book Group Will be meeting VIRTUALLY until further notice. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
Featured Book: Crooked Heart by Lissa Evans
Discussion Leader: Shiela Young
An original black comedy, set in World War II England, chronicling an unlikely alliance between a small time con artist and a young orphan evacuee. 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. Together, they cook up a scheme. Crisscrossing the bombed suburbs of London, Vee starts to make a profit and Noel begins to regain his interest in life. 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. . . .
