At the Savoy hotel, two women with very different pasts try to forget the devastation of the Great War and forge a new life in a city where those who dare to dream can have it all. Dolly is the Savoy's newest chambermaid, whose proximity to the dazzling hotel guests fuels her dreams to be a star like her idol, Loretta May. Loretta, the daughter of an earl, has rebelliously turned her back on the ordered life expected of a society woman and lives as she likes, but holds a dark secret. When Dolly's life collides with Loretta's, they must both learn to let go of their pasts in order to hold on to what they most desire.--

Way too much of a light romance for me, and ultimately I found it boring. Of course she's a 'Cinderella' - beautiful, lovely and poor. Of course he's a 'Prince' of a man - wealthy, talented and handsome. Yawn. Didn't finish it.

I enjoyed this book and the time period, however, was not a fan of the ending. The author's other books "A Memory of Violets" and "The Girl Who Came Home" I preferred over this one.

Perfect story for a BBC series! Just a really nice story of a working girl who aspires to greater things, a revered actress with a shattering secret, a shell shocked WW1 soldier, and a composer needing a muse. Very pleasant read!
