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 Jessie Keane, Maureen Lee and Lynda Page.
