Katie King is a girl with big dreams for the future! A dancer in the heart of London?s theatre district, Katie is awaiting her big break when her name will be in lights above the Gaiety Theatre. Fun-loving, cute and adoring of her charming boyfriend, the enigmatic Harry Carrington, Katie is sure that her unusual crowning glory of wild auburn curls will help catapult her out of the chorus line and into the leading roles she deserves. But Katie?s dazzling smile masks a tragedy; she is desperately ill and her enforced absence from the stage means she does not have the money for the private health care she so badly needs. A few streets away, illness has touched the life of another young woman with distinctive Titian hair, Larentia. After the two women meet, Katie must sit backstage as Larentia prepares to give the performance of a lifetime.
