Soho, 1937. When struggling Italian singer Antonio meets the wife of his wealthy new patron he recognises her instantly: it is Olivia, the captivating dance hostess he once encountered in the seedy Paradise Ballroom. Olivia is afraid that Antonio will betray the secrets of her past, but little by little they are drawn together, outsiders in a glittering world to which they do not belong. At last, with conflict looming across Europe, the attraction between them becomes impossible to resist – but when Italy declares war on Britain, the impact threatens to separate them for ever…
The Girl from the Paradise Ballroom is an epic tale set against the backdrop of war-torn Europe – from a celebrated voice.
