Abstract:

The story of a very unlikely friendship. Georgie Sinclair's husband has walked out, her sixteen-year-old son is busy surfing born-again websites and all those overdue articles... are getting her down. But when Georgie spots Mrs Shapiro... rummaging through her skip in the middle of the night, it's just the distraction she needs. And though they mistrust each other at first... a firm friendship is formed over the reduced-price shelf at the supermarket. Then Mrs Shapiro is admitted to hospital and, to her surprise, Georgie is named as her next of kin... As Georgie steps in to help her new friend, she finds herself unravelling a mystery which takes her from Highbury to wartime Europe to the Middle East and learning a bit about DIY along the way.
