Publisher's Summary

Presenting a dazzling new historical novel…. The Girl from The Savoy is as sparkling as champagne and as thrilling as the era itself.
"Sometimes life gives you cotton stockings. Sometimes it gives you a Chanel gown...."
Dolly Lane is a dreamer, a downtrodden maid who longs to dance on the London stage, but her life has been fractured by the Great War. Memories of the soldier she loved, of secret shame and profound loss, by turns pull her back and spur her on to make a better life.
When she finds employment as a chambermaid at London's grandest hotel, The Savoy, Dolly takes a step closer to the glittering lives of the Bright Young Things who thrive on champagne, jazz, and rebellion. Right now she must exist on the fringes of power, wealth, and glamor - she must remain invisible and unimportant.
But her fortune takes an unexpected turn when she responds to a struggling songwriter's advertisement for a "muse" and finds herself thrust into London's exhilarating theatre scene and into the lives of celebrated actress Loretta May and her brother, Perry. Loretta and Perry may have the life Dolly aspires to, but they, too, are searching for something.
Now, at the precipice of the life she has and the one she longs for, the girl from The Savoy must make difficult choices: between two men, between two classes, between everything she knows and everything she dreams of. A brighter future is tantalizingly close - but can a girl like Dolly ever truly leave her past behind?

Loved it.

This story made me picture scenes from Downton Abbey, since it is set in the same time period.Some aspects predictable, but there were also some surprising twists to the story.
