Summary

When 18-year-old Dot meets Sol, she feels that love has arrived at last.
Soloman Arbuthnott is a man who can bring colour and warmth to her drab life in 60s London - and what's more, he is a young, handsome soldier with excellent prospects. Someone who wants to give her everything she has dreamed of. Someone who can promise her blue skies, laughter, sun and always, always love. And for a while, life is truly like a song.
They stroll hand-in-hand by the Serpentine, dance cheek-to-cheek in Soho's smoky bars, and begin to plan their idyllic future, growing old together in Sol's ancestral home on the island of St Lucia. But this is 1961. East End girls don't date West Indian boys, let alone fall in love with them and leave the country. They stay at home and live the life their parents planned for them. Even if it leaves them lonelier than they ever thought possible. Even if it rips their heart in two....

Wonderful story.

Emotional. Rollercoaster of frustration, fury, and funny moments, plus a heart wrenching reminder of the challenges faced in different times. Uplifting in parts, tear jerking in others. A memorable listen. Great narration too.
