Product Description

Book Description

A gloriously nostalgic novel about working girls in Swansea in the fifties and sixties.

Product Description

It is Saturday night and the Pier Ballroom in Swansea is the place to be: For Lily, an evacuee unclaimed by her family at the end of the war; for Judy, taught independence by her war widow mother; for Katie, the product of a marriage between a drunken, violent father and a cowed, beaten mother; and for the spoiled, wilful Helen. It is an evening that fuels jealousies and sows the seeds for friendships, confidences, and romance . . .

More About the Author

CATRIN COLLIER/KATHERINE JOHN/CARO FRENCH/KATHERINE HARDY/K A JOHN -
At present (January 2014) working on Winds of Eden the sequel to Long Road to Baghdad. Look out for my raunchy Caro French Farcreek novels, Lady Luck, Lady Lay, Lady Chance named after the Cullen boys yachts. - Coming very soon.
My most bemused moment. When someone commented, "It will be wonderful for Pontypridd when you die." (Many of my novels are set in the town)
My best "putting in place moment". When someone joined a queue at a signing session in Waterstones and waited ten minutes to say, "I don't want a book, love, but as you're here for two hours, look after my shopping for me." - I did.
My proudest moment, when I discovered my Catrin Collier novel, One Last Summer, based on my Prussian born mother's wartime diaries was named recommended reading for adults by the Holocaust Day Memorial Trust.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stick with it 4 Aug 2013
By AmandaD
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This took me a while to get into. There are 4 main characters, and the author leaps from one to the other and at first I was not sure who was who. I think she tries to introduce all the characters too quickly. However, I stuck with it, and loved it and am now reading the second in the trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twists & turns 9 July 2014
By SUZYQ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A delightful story of youth in the 50's. CatrinColliers story is one of pure nostalgia with a twist and turn that brings love and heartache to all her characters. Must read the next two books
