Summary

From the award-winning author of The Dress Thief comes a love story set in the glittering world of London theatre. Perfect for fans of Gill Paul and Lucinda Riley. 

London, 1945. A young war widow steps aboard a train in search of a new life. Clutching the key to a mysterious inheritance, Vanessa Kingcourt can no longer resist the pull of the old Farren Theatre - an enchanted place seeped in memories of her actor father. 

Now owned by troubled former captain Alistair Redenhall, The Farren is in need of a Wardrobe Mistress and a new lease of life. With no experience and no budget for supplies, Vanessa must use her intuition to create beautiful costumes from whatever scraps of silk and thread survived the blitz. It's a seemingly impossible task, but a welcome distraction as she struggles to resist her blossoming feelings for Alistair. 

What Vanessa discovers could unravel family secrets sewn deep into the very fabric of the London theatre scene...but will she repeat the same terrible mistakes her father made? And can she dare to love a man who will never be hers?

Very weak story

Very different from what I usually read and after finishing it I remember why.
Boring, weak story line with characters you just can't care about.
Not for me

lovely read/listen

very enjoyable story , lots of twists and turns keep the reader interested and just enough romance and sex for a hopeless romantic like me. The performer was easy to listen to but didn't send one to sleep.
