A Dancer in Wartime : The Touching True Story of a Young Girl's Journey from the Blitz to the Bright Lights Paperback

Description

London during the Blitz was a time of hardship, heroism and hope.

For Gillian Lynne - a budding ballerina - it was also a time of great change as she was evacuated from war-torn London to a crumbling mansion, where dance classes took place in the faded ballroom.

Life was hard, but her talent and dedication shone through and an astonishing journey ensued, which saw Gillian dancing a triumphant debut in "Swan Lake", performing in the West End with doodlebugs falling and touring a devastated Europe entertaining the troops. "A Dancer in Wartime" paints a vivid and moving picture of what life was really like during the hard years of the Blitz and brings to life a lost world.
