Abstract:

"Christmas 1941, Isle of Dogs. With her husband, Alan, away on service, Kay Lewis is struggling alone to keep her little family together amidst the terror and shortages following the Blitz. So when she sees a shadowy figure watching the house, she is terrified. Could this be one of the spies of fifth columnists that rumour has it are crawling all over the capital? Not long after, Kay opens her door to find a woman and a young boy standing there. They claim to be Alan's wife and son, and that Alan ran away, having stolen a large sum of money from them. Kay is thrown into confusion - should she trust the absent Alan, of whom her parents have always been suspicious, or is the woman really his wife? Kay feels compelled to take in his supposed wife and child, but are they simply freeloading off her? Then disaster strikes as Alan is reported missing in action and Kay is caught up in the Bethnal Green Tube Disaster. How can she protect herself and her son if she has no way of discovering the truth?" --Publisher description.
