From one of the UK’s best-loved novelists and the No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author of ‘Stolen’.
Ellie is a sweet-natured brunette, generous of heart with a sparkling smile and an accent which reveals her East End background.
Bonny is beautiful and spoilt, with cascades of blonde hair, the brightest pair of blue eyes and a mouth like Cupid's bow.
The two girls meet in London at the end of the war when, seduced by two American airmen, they pool their wits and resources and set off to make a living on the stage. Set against the hardship and austerity of post-war Britain, and the glamour and ruthlessness of life in variety theatre, their story is one of sacrifice and burning ambition. But most of all of a powerful friendship that lasts against all odds.

This is the fourth book I have read by Leslie Pearce, the first was Belle, plus the sequels.
She has a way of writing that I can relate to, the stories are real, no pretence, quite raw, but compelling, I couldn't put them down. But had to. I've recommended her books to my friends. Thank you.
Couldn't put it down! Moments that make you want to laugh, cry and feel sympathy for the characters at the same time
