Very poor. Only kept in on my Kindle Fire for a couple of days. The only good thing about it is that it's free.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great Kipling product, 23 Aug 2014

If my collection of Kipling bags, purses and wallets gets much bigger I will have to move house. I just love their products. The purse is an ideal size and matches one of my many Kipling bags which is also in vivid purple. Their products might seem a little on the dear side, but if one is patient and waits for something like a Lightning Deal then they are great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story, well written and moving at times., 23 Aug 2014
This review is from: Crooked Heart (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Noel Bostock, aged 10, is an orphan who is living with his godmother Mattie when the story begins. Mattie had been a suffragette in her early years, well educated and in her own way passed on a great deal of knowledge to Noel. Sadly Mattie's mind was deteriorating rapidly due to dementia and before long due to her worsening state of health and the fact that the London Blitz was getting worse, Noel was evacuated to St. Albans. Noel was one of those unfortunate children who was, as they say, behind the door when looks were given out, and he was eventually sent to live with Vera Sedge, one of life's loser, deep in debt with not only Noel but her aged mother to look after. Vera doesn't care what she does to get money. and as the story develops Noel helps her with various inventive, and not strictly legal, schemes to bring money in.

Because of his somewhat bizarre upbringing he has little, if anything, in common with other children and even less in common with Vera, but somehow this works out to their advantage, and together with Noel they become a team, managing to make money out of the war as I said before. There are many other people only interested in making money out of the war, and some of them are downright dangerous as Vera finds out to her cost.

The story is both tragic and funny at the same time, and a wonderful read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
