Description:
Originally published: as by Helene Wiggin. London: Coronet, 1995.
When Isobel Morton takes over the cafe in Lichfield's market square, she has big plans. Soon renamed The Victory Café, with a menu that delights despite rations, the girls who work at the Vic are swept away by Belle's lust for life. Among the regular customers is a trio of soldiers from the nearby American base and waitress Dorrie Goodman soon befriends them, learning about jazz and romance in the process. But the stifling morality of a Midlands town in the 40s cannot accommodate such a friendship; jealously, and hatred and the weight of public disapproval combine to precipitate a tragedy.
