The brilliant new novel from the bestselling author of The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets.

1962, Cornwall. Tara Jupp – vicar’s daughter, occasional thief, expert horse-rider and second fiddle to her sister ‘the beauty’ Lucy – sings at a wedding and is spotted by a record producer.

With the spotlight suddenly, thrillingly shining on her alone, the roots of Tara’s country existence are shaken free and she is propelled to Swinging Sixties London.

Plunged into a dazzling new world of fashion, music and heartache, in a city where skirts are being hitched up as fast as past is being pulled down, can Tara hold the limelight and hold on to who she really is?
