Trixie and her pregnant mother go on the run after the death of her father and from then on she becomes a fighter. Her brother, young Teddy, is taken into care and once Trixie grows up she attempts to find him. Set in and around Gosport and Fareham, where Trixie sings in the pubs and clubs, it is part of the lovely Daisy Lane series of the 1940s, all highly recommended.

If you like June Hampson you might also like to read books by Kay Brellend, Mandasue Heller and Lynda La Plante.

The Crying Game by June Hampson

1944. Trixie has only even known turmoil. As a teenager, she covered up the terrible truth of her father's death, and was forced on the run with her pregnant mother. Now, in an attempt to build a life for herself, Trixie becomes a singer in the pubs and clubs of Gosport. But despite her success, her heart is set on finding the younger brother she had to leave behind in Portsmouth years earlier. And little does she know that fate has yet more cruel twists in store...
