Synopsis

A Girl Next Door by Mary Jane Staples

It is 1956, and Boots Adams is celebrating his sixtieth birthday with a good old-fashioned cockney knees-up. A good time is had by all, even though Gemma, James and the rest of the younger people insist that the music has to be rock and roll. The new generation is growing up quickly – Philip and Phoebe are spending a lot of time together, while Freddie and Cassieâs daughter Maureen, eighteen years old and as pretty as a picture, has ambitions to become a model.


Meanwhile, changes are on the way. A big clothing firm wants to take over Adams Fashions, and Boots and Sammy have difficult decisions to make. And while Felicity feels that the chances of her regaining her sight are as far off as ever, Polly sees a familiar face she cannot place – a mysterious stranger who is being sheltered in Walworth. Anneliese encounters someone she never wishes to see again, and turns to Boots for help . . .
