Jayne's mother has always known who she was and where she was going. The same cannot be said for Jayne...
Marian Westwood took the first 'train' out of Cardiff .Though dancing in a Soho strip club wasn't quite the life she had envisaged, it gave her the chance to tilt at more enticing theatrical windmills. In no time at all she was a star of stage and screen, an icon whose life and image others aspired to.
Watching from the stalls in Marian's fifties heyday, Gill found her stage presence mesmerising, an escape from the dry as dust home life she'd suffered for all her sixteen years. It woke her up, dragged her out into a brighter, livelier real world.
Years later, as they excavate an abandoned garden, Jayne and Gill find they have more in common than an errant husband and son. They have a compelling story to tell, one that grips from first page to last as their seemingly disparate histories intertwine in a passionate story of love and loss.
