Publisher's Summary

Olivia Curtis wakes to her seventeenth birthday and her presents: a roll of flame-coloured silk for her first evening dress, a diary for her innermost thoughts, a china ornament, and a ten shilling note. Safe within the bosom of a family at once lovingly familiar yet curiously remote, she stands poised on the brink of womanhood, anticipating her first dance with tremulous uncertainty and excitement - the greatest, yet most terrifying, event in her restricted social life.

For her pretty, poised elder sister, Kate, the dance will be a triumph, but for Olivia, shy and awkward, what will it be?

    "Perfect narration"

    Joanna Lumley's voice and style are perfect for this story. I even enjoyed hearing the breaks in the recording, and the occasional page turning (I think), transported as I was by being read to.

    Story
    "Beautiful, feminine, charming.-A perfect match !"

    The day and evening of a Ball in the country thru the eyes of a naive but determined young woman. A pre-war miniature , closely observed. One of a trilogy, but only two on Audible. com.
    " The Weather in the Streets", ,please!. Ms. Lumley just perfect in the narration . A fat cry from her brassy fashion model in "Absolutely Fabulous "
