"Old friends from the Buckingham Hotel return in this heartfelt romance which sees the glitz and glamour of the ballroom fall under the shadow of the Second World War."
What a showstopper of a novel Anton du Beke has gifted us! The drama of war, and the tide of emotions associated with it - fear, courage, love, pride and torment - are played out across every page of this sweeping, romantic drama. It’s winter 1939 and Champion of the Grand Ballroom, Raymond de Guise, has something a little heavier than dance steps weighing on his mind. War is declared on the night of his brother’s wedding and life for everyone at Hotel Buckingham is about to take a dramatic turn. With their leading men off fighting for Britain, Nancy, Vivienne and the staff holding the fort back in London have their own emotional battles – and secrets - to face up to. Is it possible to keep the show going with everything else falling around them? Fans of previous Buckingham Hotel romances will savour the tender dialogue between Raymond and Nancy, Artie and Vivienne – as well as the usual ballroom comraderie and glamour. But there’s so much more to keep these pages turning: dangerous boardroom shenanigans at the hotel and thrilling scenes from the beaches of Dunkirk add the perfect spike of energy and action, as too do the touching side stories featuring Ruth and Karina. In We’ll Meet Again, du Beke succeeds in capturing a moment in history with elegance, balance and tenderness – all fabulous qualities that we associate with him on and off the dancefloor. Arm yourself with tissues and a large pot of tea for this beautiful, wartime love story.
