A ten year old with no family, Noel Bostock is evacuated from London to escape the Nazi bombardment, landing in a suburb with Vera "Vee" Sedge—a 36 year old widow drowning in debts and dependents. Wise beyond his years, Noel has little in common with other children and even less with the impulsive Vee, who hurtles from one self-made crisis to the next. Nonetheless, they cook up a scheme. Crisscrossing the bombed outskirts of London, Vee starts to make a profit and Noel begins to regain his interest in life. But there are plenty of other people making money out of the war—and some of them are dangerous. Noel may have been moved to safety, but he isn't actually safe at all.
