About the Author:

Beryl Matthews was born in London but now lives in Hampshire. She grew up in a family of enthusiastic readers, and books have always been a very important part of her life. As a young girl her ambition was to become a professional singer, but lack of funds drove her into an office, where she worked her way up from tea-girl to credit controller. Her hobbies are writing, reading, swimming and golf.

From Booklist:

Set in 1920s London, Matthews’ latest effort is chock-full of period ambience and authenticity. The three Bentley children—Dora, 18, Tom, 12, and Lily, 6—adore their mother, Harriet, who’s made many sacrifices to move them from the slums into a nicer neighborhood. Working the night shift at a local factory limits the time she can spend with the children, but she’s made sure to teach them the proper way to speak and the importance of respecting their elders. When Harriet fails to come home from work one day, the children are at first annoyed and then frightened. Fearing their mother may have taken ill, Dora heads to the factory, where she learns that Harriet never worked there. Stunned and terrified, the children turn to their neighbor, disabled WWI veteran and former policeman Stanley Crawford, for help. They’re sure that solid, reliable Stan will sort things out. Although there’s a fair dose of mystery and romance in this well-crafted historical thriller, the real appeal lies in the three spunky, brave, cheerful, and resourceful children. --Emily Melton
