Publisher's Summary

Betty Dean can't wait to leave her quiet upbringing in Guernsey and begin her mission to find Clara Pickle - the mysterious beneficiary in her grandmother's will. She arrives in grungy, 1990s Soho, ready for whatever life has to throw at her. Or so she thinks...
As Betty searches for Clara, she is taken on a journey through her grandmother, Arlette's, extraordinary life in 1920s bohemian London, uncovering a tale of love, loss and heartbreak amidst the hedonistic world of the Bright Young People.

Loved this story

Great parallel storylines, consisting of family history, romance and some amateur detective work. The back and forth in time really worked and the narrator did a fantastic job representing each character uniquely.

I love this book so much!

Love this narrator..she isn't struggling to do a British accent. I absolutely loved everything about this book but to be honest, I don't think k I would have lived it near as much reading it as I did listening to it! there was just something about the way she read it...changed voices for each character but not in a distracting way. And the story! Oh the story ♡♡♡♡
