Ruth D'Alessandro, like most children, grew up listening to her mother's stories. Unlike most bedtime tales, however, her mother's were real and thrilling, and often involved cadavers. D'Alessandro keeps Gwendoline Crockford's story alive with this wholesome, inspirational memoir of a "1950s Policewoman," written from memory, a lot of research, and a little guessing. Accompany WPC Crockford as she passes her selection exam with flying colors, manages the daily struggle of maintaining authority as a policewoman in postwar England (where most "coppers" were men), hauls a skeleton out of the woods, tracks down missing children and an escaped zebra, and navigates her personal position in society. Told with verve, humor, and more than a little admiration, Calling WPC Crockford is an intimate portrait of a passionate woman with steadfast strength. (RR)
