Reprint. Originally published: London: Heinemann, 1996.

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.
