Author of The Atomic Weight of Love
"No one captures the exuberant passions and inner struggles of women like Elizabeth Church.”—Martha Hall Kelly, author of Lilac Girls
Set in the 1960s, this is the story of a strong young woman who finds unexpected fortune, friendships, and love when she leaves her small town in Kansas for the bright lights of Las Vegas as a showgirl.
With her uncanny knack for understanding the hidden lives of women, Elizabeth J. Church captures both the iconic extravagance of an era and the bravery of a young woman who dances through her sadness to find connection, freedom, and, most important, herself.
