After the tragic death of her father, aspiring singer Jessie Delaney has been forced to live with her bullying aunt and dreams of getting the break of a lifetime to escape. When she's cast as one of the Variety Girls in a new show at the Empire Theatre, Jessie hopes this is the new beginning she's been longing for. But following her dreams onstage will mean being separated from sweetheart, Harry.

As she starts her new job, it's not long before she forms a close-knit friendship with Frances and Dolly, although the girls soon find that life in the theatre isn't always glamorous. And with the country on the brink of war, everyone is facing an uncertain future. Can friendship help Jessie through the challenges ahead?

A gritty and heartwarming saga perfect for listeners of Elaine Everest and Daisy Styles.

Lovely read

Loved this book, nice easy read, absolutely lovely, I was born in Cleethorpes, and still live there. The memories of a bag of chips with scraps sizzling on a cold night. I went to variety shows at the Empire Theatre. Nice gentle read, very likeable.
