Description

World War Two casts a dark shadow over the Hammersmith Palais de Danse, but the show must go on...

April 1940. Violet Millington, is ready to rediscover the joy of living. As she waltzes into the palais to begin her new life of lifting spirits in war swept London, and leave her family’s sorrow behind her, she soon discovers she is not the only one with something they’re running from. 

Violet quickly befriends gutsy American Nancy, the diamond of the dance hall, flame-haired Renee with her enviable foxtrot, and Temperance, who must overcome her bullies to achieve her dreams.

In the face of the Blitz, news of a Palais dance competition keeps the foursome's spirits up. But as the contest draws near, a devastating chain of events is set in motion with life-changing consequences.

As the Good Time Girls face the music, can the ties of friendship, love and loyalty ensure they survive?

Perfect for fans of Rosie Clarke, Vicki Beeby and Rosie Goodwin.

Featured Reviews

The Good Time Girls at War by Fiona Ford is a great WWII-era historical fiction saga that is the first in a new series.

What a great start to what I expect will be an enjoyable and entertaining series. This book takes place in London during the year of 1940. Here we are introduced to a collection of young women that are from different paths in life, yet brought together during times of uncertainty and war. Violet, Nancy, Renee, and Temperance are great characters and forge friendships that will hopefully take them through what are sure to be difficult times and also life’s ups and downs.

There is action, drama, history, romance, and a bit of suspense and mystery as well.

I always love books that focus on the structure of strong female characters and their respective connections and relationships. This definitely fits the bill and I am looking forward to the next book.

5/5 stars

I have waited for the new Fiona Ford book to appear as she writes such moving stories.The Good Time Girls at War is a brilliant book that is set around the people that work at the Palais where dancing is top of the menu.When the men leave to fight the women are left to hold on to the home front and keep businesses going and Nancy is determined to keep her husbands beloved Palais going while having to face obstacles and difficult people.With her friends and staff she holds her head up and does the job her husband left her to do.This is a book that I have really loved to read i have some favourites and of course some I would rather slap but fans of Fiona Ford will love this and I look forward to the next book 5*
