Abstract:

1945: London is still reeling from the Blitz and years of war. Fourteen-year-old Nathaniel and his sister Rachel are apparently abandoned by their parents, left in the care of an enigmatic figure named The Moth. They suspect he might be a criminal, and both grow more convinced and less concerned as they get to know his eccentric crew of friends: men and women with a shared history, all of whom seem determined now to protect, and educate - in rather unusual ways - Rachel and Nathaniel. But are they really what and who they claim to be? A dozen years later, Nathaniel begins to uncover the hidden truths from his past, exploring both the traumas and the possibilities of rebuilding a life after war.
