This was a great book to listen to.
This is the story of Sue Carver and is set in Rotherhithe England in 1935. She lives at home with her parents and grandmother and works for Fred Hunt a local car dealer and has a good friend next door Jane.
Jane and Sue love to go dancing where Sue, along with a lot of other girls has fallen in love with a singer who sometimes plays at the town hall, Cy Taylor. On Christmas Eve Sue goes dancing without Jane and gets to meet Cy and he kisses her and she thinks she is definitely in love. She arranges to meet him at a hotel and after the rendezvous when he moves on she is very upset.
In the meantime Fred is in love with Sue but does not know how to get up the courage to tell her, he is worried about their 14 year age gap. Jane’s brother Ron is also in love with her.
Tragedy strikes Sue and she wonders how anyone will ever be able to love her now.
I am glad to say that is has a happy ending.
