To the back drop of a seaside town and rock and roll in the 50’s, we follow the fortunes of a headstrong Scarlett Smith. Having been let down by the men in her life she is determined to find happiness with her one true love.

Synopsis

Bye Bye Love by Patricia Burns

Set in South end during the rock n roll years of the 1950s, this is a wonderfully written saga about an indomitable young girl called Scarlett - and her journey to love and happiness. When Scarlett Smith's mother dies of a heart attack on Coronation day, Scarlett and her father have to move out of their country pub to a seafront pub in South end. There Scarlett meets Jonathan Blane, son of the landlord.

They enjoy an innocent romance, but when Jonathan's father makes a pass at Scarlett and she reacts violently, the Smiths are once again turned out. While Jonathan is away on national service, 17-year-old Scarlett misses him terribly, but learns to cope through her love of rock 'n' roll dancing. After being seduced by singer Ricky Harrington, Scarlett becomes pregnant and soon after the adulterous Ricky abandons Scarlett.

It seems all hope for Jonathan and Scarlett's happiness together is lost, would they ever be able to find the happiness they deserve?
