Storming into the London Blitz, Mrs. Braithwaite has to find her missing daughter Betty. She drags along the reluctant Mr. Norris along as an unwitting sidekick as they try to piece together Betty’s unexpectedly chaotic life.
As she is thrown into the midst of danger and death, Mrs. Braithwaite is forced to rethink her old-fashioned notions and reconsider the question that’s been puzzling her: How do you measure the success of your life?
Readers will be charmed by the unforgettable Mrs. Braithwaite and her plucky, ruthless optimism, and find in The Spies of Shilling Lane a novel with surprising twists and turns, quiet humor, and a poignant examination of mothers and daughters and the secrets we keep.
