Life is starting to look 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 ex-GI with an ice-cold stare and fresh out of military prison, the Widow has come to settle some unfinished business with Bert. The Widow's looking for his share of the profits from a wartime scam'and a little vengeance for his years in the clink. Rosie soon learns that where there's smoke, there's fire, and it will take more than divine intervention to save the neighborhood'and Rosie's family'from the Widow's vengence. Charting the further misadventures of the characters from the acclaimed Not All Tarts Are Apple, Pip Granger's newest story of London's underworld shows her storytelling at its best.
