Follow Your Dream
She was following her dream. And Im going to do the same. Im going to be a dancer. In January 1947, Lillians Aunty Eileen escaped their familys grim Southend boarding house to find her own path. Now Lillians gran rules the family with an iron fist and Lillian, the youngest, is no better than a slave. She takes comfort from her Aunty Eileens example, knowing that she will one day leave and become a dancer. As the austere Forties give way to the excitement of the never had it so good Fifties, Lillian joins a touring company, dancing in the chorus line. Her dream is so close she can touch it. The only thing missing is James Kershaw, who Lillian thinks is the love of her life, but who regards her as no more than a little sister. When a family crisis demands her return to Southend, and to James, Lillian starts to think is it time to find a new dream to follow?
