Her mother is killed in the London Blitz. Her father is lost at sea whilst serving in the Merchant Navy. Approaching her 16th birthday, Angie Bolton faces life without the guidance of her parents.But her father has left her a legacy. A legacy of dreams they shared and it proves to be her driving force as she strives to carve a road for herself against a background of the aftermath of war.She is disillusioned with life in London with Uncle Cyril, whom she detests, and Edwina Ferrie, his housekeeper, whom she distrusts.A chance encounter with Lynn Arnold opens a door to luxury and a world to which Angie doesn't feel she belongs. It is a world that offers fun, love and tragedy in equal measure, but could it also hold the key to her fulfilling her aspirations?ON THE SWING OF ONE STAR is a tale that captures the imagination as it tackles the complexities faced by an adolescent growing up quickly in a changing environment. Inevitably, mistakes are made and lessons learned and many battles of conscience fought but, ultimately, this is a moving account of a young girl's endeavours to let go of her late father by achieving their shared dreams.
