The Widow Ginger
Life is looking up in the London cafe where Rosie lives with her beloved Aunt Maggie and Uncle Bert. It is 1954, rationing is over, and Roger Bannister's four-minute mile is the pride of England. But the Widow Ginger couldn't care less. An icy ex-GI is fresh out of military prison, the Widow has come to settle up some unfinished business with Bert. Meanwhile, Luigi, the local Romeo, meets his romantic match, Rosie's best friend keels over on the playground, and someone in Soho is playing with matches. Rosie soon learns that where there's smoke, there's fire, and it will take more than divine intervention to save the neighbourhood -- and Rosie's family -- from the Widow's vengeance.
A lively follow-up to the acclaimed Not All Tarts Are Apple, Pip Granger's newest tale of London's underworld shows her playful storytelling at its best.
