Pearl's young world is shattered when Papa orders her to leave home long before she is prepared. She takes with her the secret of catching Papa in the pantry with the maid.
After moving into Mrs. Lacey's Boarding House, Pearl and her chum Ella find suitable employment in the city. On weekends they head downtown to the Canteen to volunteer as "suitable young ladies" to dance with the boys in uniform. Pearl considers this her patriotic duty--and a whole lot of fun--until Will sweeps her into his arms and heart.
The Starlite Ballroom becomes the Saturday destination for good times, where the four couples escape their worries and dance their blues away.
Karen Truesdell Riehl has woven a heart-wrenching story out of bits and pieces of history gleaned from old family letters and photographs. The story is fiction, but her characters will live in your memories forever.
