Summary

Every girl's dream was to be whisked away by a handsome GI...

Iris Jones had escaped the Blitz but was living in crippling poverty after the war - until a chance meeting changed her life. Aged just sixteen, she fell in love and married US soldier Bob Irvine. And soon after she set sail for a new life in America.

It was the 1950s and the land of hope, dreams and Doris Day movies. But Iris ended up in a cramped Chicago bungalow with Bob's parents. With a baby on the way and a husband turning daily into a stranger, Iris was wracked by homesickness. Trapped and desperately lonely, she had to make a fresh start, in a country where hope and opportunity thrived.

In this dramatic sequel to the Sunday Times bestseller Far From the East End, we follow a young girl from London to New York, Chicago and Las Vegas in her struggle to find work, love and a sense of belonging in a foreign land.
