The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice

The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice is a book I found in the bargain bin at Book Warehouse. The story is set in London, post-WWII and tells the story of eighteen year old Penelope, her brother, Indigo, and her mother whom live in a huge house which they can not afford to maintain. Their father / husband died during the war and left them virtually destitute. While looking for a job, Penelope accepts an offer of a cab ride with the vivacious Charlotte Ferris, and they become great friends. Penelope follows Charlotte to parties and even plays a part in a farce by pretending to be Charlotte’s cousin's fiancĂ© to make a girl jealous. The story is about coming of age in a changing world along with friendship and little romance.
