The Pearly Queen was really Aunt Edie. She was thirty-nine, had a good job in a factory, lived in a flat off Camberwell Green, and had never married. Her fiance had drowned in the Thames when she was a girl and since then she had been on her own, though not from choice. Everyone loved Aunt Edie - but especially the Andrews family. Jack Andrews was having a tough time. He'd come back from the First World War to find his wife had 'got religion'.She'd got it so badly that she finally went off, left Jim and the three children and joined Father Peter's League of Repenters. She never really came home again. Jack and the children managed as best they could, but things were pretty tough when Aunt Edie turned up. The first thing she did was give her cousin, Maud Andrews, a piece of her mind for running off and leaving her family. But when that didn't do any good, Edie moved in and took over the Andrews family. For the first time in years life began to look good again. Aunt Edie was warm, generous, kind, and, above all, she was their very own Pearly Queen.

Pearly kings and queens were plentiful all over cockney South London. It was an easy-going fellowship devoted to upholding family togetherness, to bringing good cheer to life, and to giving kids a good time. Extrovert Aunt Edie was a natural bringer of good cheer and accordingly a natural pearly queen. She had suffered one sad happening, however. When she was twenty, her fiancé was drowned following a boating accident on the Thames.

Oh, it’s you, Miss ’Arper, well, I never,’ said the friendly neighbourhood gossip, glancing at Aunt Edie’s weekend suitcase. I expect you’ve come to be a kind ’elp again. does ’appen to be me,’ said Aunt Edie. Oh, he can stand on his own feet, Mrs Shaw, it’s his children who need a bit of care and fussin’.

I have to say I didn't enjoy this book as much as any of the other Mary Jane Staples books I've read ( and I have read a few) after skipping through a few pages I was half way through the book before I started to get interested.
