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 Rosie Goodwin, Kitty Neale and Mandasue Heller.

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...

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.
