A Dancer in Wartime (Paperback)

Gillian Lynne


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.
