When Percy and Betty Harlency abandon their seedy Streatham pub, for the Copper Kettle Tearoom in Kent, life for their daughter April changes dramatically. She is befriended by the wonderfully dangerous Ruby, whose red hair and brutal home life emphasise her love of fire, and by the immaculately dressed Mr Greenridge who likes to follow her around the village. Mingling the innocent with the sinister and laced with the tragic and the bizarre, this is a rare evocation of a 1950s childhood.

“masterly miniaturist”

Shena Mackay has a real effortless talent for writing. Her books are vivid yet delicate evocations of place and character. There is a melancholia that hovers over many of her stories and this one is no exception.... More
