It’s my great pleasure today to be a part of the blog tour for Alice In Theatreland, the new novel from Julia Roberts. My thanks to Julia for inviting me to be a part of this tour. I have a great guest post from Julia introducing the stars of the show, and I’ll be sharing it along with my thoughts on the book with you in a moment, but first up, here is what the book is all about.
The Official Book Blurb
It’s summer 1976; London is languishing in the sultry heat. Beautiful and talented nineteen-year-old, Alice Abbott, arrives in the city with high hopes of one day seeing her name up in lights but first she must impress Richard, the producer of a new West End show, Theatreland.
Alice is befriended at the audition by the more experienced Gina, who, although burdened by her own dark secrets, is determined to protect the newcomer from the sleaze behind the glamour. She also attracts attention from the male lead in the show, Peter, a former pop star struggling to escape his playboy reputation.
Alice’s star seems to be rising as fast as the temperature until she naively accepts an impromptu dinner invitation from Richard. What happened that night? And how far will Richard go to protect his guilty secret?
