Description

An enthralling story of one woman's determined grab for freedom after WW2 from a talented new Australian voice. 'PART CABARET, PART BURLESQUE, AND LIKE NOTHING YOU'VE EVER SEEN BEFORE! GENTLEMEN, AND LADIES IF YOU'VE DARED TO COME, WELCOME TO ... THE VICTORY!' 1945: After the thrill and danger of volunteering in an all-female searchlight regiment protecting Londoners from German bombers overhead, Evelyn Bell is secretly dismayed to be sent back to her rigid domestic life when the war is over. But then she comes across a secret night-time show, hidden from the law on a boat in the middle of the Thames. Entranced by the risque and lively performance, she grabs the opportunity to join the misfit crew and escape her dreary future. At first the Victory travels from port to port to raucous applause, but as the shows get bigger and bigger, so too do the risks the performers are driven to take, as well as the growing emotional complications among the crew. Until one desperate night ... 1963: Lucy, an unloved and unwanted little girl, is rescued by a mysterious stranger who says he knows her mother. On the Isle of Wight, Lucy is welcomed into an eclectic family of ex-performers. She is showered with kindness and love, but gradually it becomes clear that there are secrets they refuse to share. Who is Evelyn Bell? PRAISE FOR KERRI TURNER 'This is a beautifully told story about family - those we are born into and those we make for ourselves. I loved it!' Lauren Chater, the bestselling author of The Lace Weaver 'Beautiful, daring, deceptive and surprising.'The Australian Women's Weekly 'An impressive debut ... one of the strengths of the novel is the tapestry it creates of everyday life in an era of great turbulence.'Queensland Times
