This is very cozy book about life in England during ww2. The main character is Mrs. Braithwaite who has been ostracized from her village for being newly divorced and for being unpleasant and bossy. She decides to leave for London to find the one person she has left, her daughter Betty. When she arrives at Betty’s , she finds out that Betty has been missing for several days. Together with the timid landlord, Mr. Norris, the pair set out to locate Betty. This book deals with the discovery of not only the mystery of Betty’s whereabouts , but of what makes a person happy and successful. The ending was little predictable, but I enjoyed it for the most part.
