A warm and heartfelt WW2 saga of hope, love, and female friendship and how women pull together through good times and bad. Perfect for fans of Dilly Court and Nadine Dorries.

In 1940s Hampshire the war is settling into its stride bringing dark days for many.

Eighteen-year-old Connie Baxter works as an usherette at the Criterion Picture House in Gosport. Here she meets Vera, a cleaner at the cinema, and her niece, Babs, who sells ice creams and dreams of being in the spotlight. As the war rages on, the women get to know each other and become firm friends, uniting against the wandering hands of the Criterion's creepy manager.

But when Connie falls for the charming Tommo Smith, her friendships are tested. When Tommo tells her that he's a dancing instructor at a local club her eyes light up. Connie is desperate for him to teach her to dance like her idol, Ginger Rogers. Yet Babs is suspicious and convinced that Tommo is too good to be true.

As Connie struggles with the harsh realities of war and the turbulence of romance, she comes to realize that life isn't always like the pictures...
