    I picked up this little gem in a bookstore in Glendale, the title and cover photo having caught my eye. The author recounts her days as a young woman performing (mostly in England) just before, during, and shortly after WWII. It's an easy read and quite entertaining. She really gives you a feel for English life during an incredible time in history. She obviously wasn't living the life of a typical English girl by any means, traveling extensively and entertaining civilians, troops, and officers, but she puts you right in there among the bombs dropping, the ration cards, the blackouts, and people carrying on living in houses which are missing an entire outside wall. There are lots of stories about the different acts that shared the stage with her and her family and tidbits about what goes on backstage. Her style is breezy and she moves her story along quickly. I'm sure she cut out a lot. The book is short enough that she probably could've put in another 4 or 5 chapters and not bored the reader. I'd recommend this book. At the very end, you find out that not only did she live a pretty interesting life in England, but then after she came to the U.S. as a newlywed, she and her husband went on to found Kelty Pack. That was intriguing enough for me to look up that information and find out that there's another book she wrote: Backpacking the Kelty Way. I intend to read that one next.
