I loved Foxden Acres, the first of the Dudley Sisters novels, and this one is every bit as good. Set in London's Theatreland during the Second World War, Applause follows the life of Margaret, a girl from the country who is desperate to be an actress. Can't say much without giving away the story, but this perfectly captures the excitement of the theatre and the danger of London during the Blitz, and it's lovely how it links in with the first book and Bess, who is manning the fort back at home. Beautifully written with flawed, human, lovable characters .. definitely deserves a round of applause!!
