Agatha lives with her granddaughter Katherine, or rather her granddaughter lives with her. Agatha's husband and son both died in WWI. Agatha has a few secrets that no one knows, save those who were involved, and to her contrition and delight, one of those secrets shows up on her doorstep.
While this book is well-written, my one major complaint about it is that there seems to be a discrepancy about Agatha's age. The book makes it very clear that Agatha is 70 years old. However, it also implies that 24 years earlier, she was young and working as an undercover agent during WWI. It speaks of the youth she’s lost during that quarter of a century. Given that she’s 70 in the book I figure that during WWI, Agatha would have been in her early 40s, not exactly a spring chicken.
This is a lovely, feel good tale about people doing their best to fight the war as best they can on the home front. It's filled with period words, products, and activities, so it adds a nice, heaping helping of nostalgia for those who appreciate it. I do, so I found this a highly enjoyable read.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys cozy, humorous books.
