Summary

August, 1955. Janice Butler is working as a waitress at her mother’s Blackpool boardinghouse before she heads off to university. When Val and Cissie, both from Walker’s woollen mill in Halifax, come to stay for a week, the three young women form an instant friendship. They attend a local dance at the Winter Gardens, which changes all their lives, both for better and for worse. Romance beckons for all three girls, but can a holiday fling ever lead to something deeper? As autumn approaches, the three friends discover that life doesn’t always turn out as one would expect, and the course of true love never did run smooth....
