Description
The epic love story of an Italian singer and a British dancer, set against the backdrop of war-torn EnglandAntonio and Olivia meet only for a brief moment, but the electricity between them is breathtaking. He is a struggling Italian singer; she is a captivating dance hostess at London's seedy Paradise Ballroom. Months later, as World War II dawns, they unexpectedly meet again. Olivia's fortunes have changed, and she is now the wife of Antonio's wealthy new patron. She fears Antonio will betray the secrets of her past, but little by little they are drawn together, outsiders in a glittering, rarefied world of tradition and class to which neither of them truly belongs. At last, with the threat of an unimaginable conflict looming across Europe, the attraction between them becomes impossible to resist—but when Italy declares war on England, the political and emotional impact threatens to separate them forever. Heart-wrenching and compulsively readable, The Girl from the Paradise Ballroom is a dazzling story of forbidden love and family loyalties set amid history's most devastating war.
