AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It's 1918 . . .

and Alice lives with her big family by the Swan River in Perth, while on the other side of the world, the Great War rages. Alice's deepest wish is to become a ballerina, and when she auditions for a famous dance teacher from London, it seems as if her dreams might come true. But then there's a terrible accident, and Alice must ask herself whether there are more important things than dancing.

'Meet Alice and join her adventure in the first of four stories about a gifted girl in a time of war.' (Publisher's blurb)
