Dancing at the Victory Cafe

Dancing at the Victory Cafe

By: Leah Fleming (author)eBook

Description

FROM THE ACCLAIMED AUTHOR OF THE LAST PEARL AND THE CAPTAIN'S DAUGHTER**, this is a beautiful and dramatic novel about family secrets, wartime betrayal and redemption.**

When Isobel Morton takes over the café in Lichfield’s market square, she has big plans. Soon renamed The Victory Café, with a  menu that delights despite rations, the girls who work at the Vic are swept away by Belle’s lust for life.
 
Among the regular customers  is a trio of soldiers from the nearby American base and waitress Dorrie Goodman soon befriends them, learning about jazz and romance in the process. But the stifling morality of a Midlands town in the 40s cannot accommodate such a friendship; jealously, hatred and the weight of public disapproval combine to precipitate a tragedy.
 
It is not until many years after the war that friendship and reconciliation can begin to heal the wounds of the past …
