Narrator Moira Quirk delivers a WWII story focusing on a group of children who were sent from London to a rural location during the Blitz. The story features the stoic Bridget Kelly, a nurse-nanny (with questionable qualifications) for 10 children who were sent to Greenway House, the country estate of Agatha Christie. Quirk portrays multidimensional personalities, displaying how the residents and workers of Greenway--including butlers, maids, cooks, gardeners, and other locals--deal with the fallout of war even at a substantial distance from the devastating London bombings. She captures their oddities, prejudices, patriotism, fears, and camaraderie in the heat of war. And in the Christie style, there's also a second nurse with a false identity and even a murder. B.J.P.
