However, I felt the ending was very sad and disappointing. What the author did to Dolly and Teddy was totally unnecessary. After everything they'd gone through, they deserved the happiness of one another.

The author wrote it as if they were all ok and fine, but I wasn't at all. So, that's my upset. It's a good book if you consider how emoti I really enjoyed this book It's a good book if you consider how emotionally involved I was to get so upset about the end.

It's not that I think the author wrote a bad book, but I strenuously object to that ending, thus my lower rating.

I kept seeing this one make its way around the web a lot of times and each time I wanted to read it that much more.

I finally got the chance to read this book. It far exceeded my expectations. I was instantly transported into the 's, the Savoy Hotel, and the grueling world of Broadway productions.

Until some books where one or two main character's voices are strong, in I read The Girl Who Came Home and really thoroughly enjoyed it, however this book I could not stop reading from this author.

Until some books where one or two main character's voices are strong, in this book I loved all of the voices from Dolly, Loretta, Teddy, and Perry.

Each one had a story to tell that was lovely. The Girl from the Savoy is a must read. May 06, Adrienne rated it it was amazing Shelves: historical-fiction.

Absolutely delightful. A wonderful escapist read: set largely within London's Savoy around and after WW1. Beautifully written and unputdownable.

View all 9 comments. Jun 15, KathyAnne rated it it was amazing. Sometimes she is a butterfly. And, always, always she is surrounded by hope and love and adventure.

A story of loss, love, hope and adventures. Of letting go and moving forward and chasing your dreams no matter how out of reach they may be.

I loved the imagery of the butterfly throughout. I am quite fond of the butterfly and all that it represents so this story truly wrapped around my heart from page one and didn't let g "Sometimes she is a Daffodil.

I am quite fond of the butterfly and all that it represents so this story truly wrapped around my heart from page one and didn't let go.

It is told from the POV of three people Dolly, Teddy and Loretta. It is a moving story that takes you on a journey of slowly discovering the fate of the characters as they all face a future that was forever changed by war.

They all dealt with loss very differently but it forever changed them and altered the path of their lives. The amazing web of details that are slowly revealed as the story progresses comes together beautifully in the end and left me feeling warm and happy.

There are some truly powerful scenes throughout this book that brought on a few tears. I loved Dolly and her desire to follow her dreams and her adventures.

Her love for Teddy, her desire to be something more. Spread your wings and soar. I have a total book hangover from reading this non-stop since I started it yesterday afternoon.

Each page offered it's own poetry on life and how precious and valuable it is. My favorite line in the book: "It's curious Miss Lane, how things are often at their most beautiful when they are at the end of their life.

Shooting stars, autumn leaves. Nobody notices the leaves when they're all green and lush in the summer-only when they turn crimson and golden in the autumn.

Perhaps we all become more colorful, more fascinating as we reach our autumn months. Life becomes more visible and more beautiful when we find that there is less of it ahead of us.

We begin to notice the things that matter the most. Our most valuable possessions are suddenly quite visible and treasured. A wonderful story that will stay with me for a long time.

Book Babblers When I find out that a book is set in s London, I'm the first in the queue to read it. The 20s is one of my favourite eras to read about, and London thrills me,always.

The short prologue is set in Lancashire in and Dolly is at the station, waving her sweetheart Teddy off to war.

Teddy is convinced that he will be home safely in no time, and that he and Dolly will marry and live happily ever after.

Dolly is not so sure, she has a feeling that things will not turn out like that. Fast forwar When I find out that a book is set in s London, I'm the first in the queue to read it.

Fast forward seven years and the reader finds Dolly in London, alone. She's been working as a housemaid but has secured herself a job at the Savoy;one of London's very best hotels.

She's late, it's raining and she collides with a young gentleman. Perry Clements. There's a definite spark between them despite their different circumstances.

They part company, not realising that this chance encounter is only the beginning of their story. The reader accompanies Dolly as she begins her job at the Savoy.

Hazel Gaynor has an incredible eye for detail and her description of the luxury and grandeur of this iconic place are really excellent.

Dolly is mesmerised by the beauty and style, not just of the building, but of the guests and visitors that she encounters.

Dolly is a 'gallery girl'. She dreams of fame and celebrity, and wants nothing more than to be on the stage. She spends her saved pennies for the cheap seats at the theatre, along with lots of other working class girls who were recovering from the horrors of war and wanted glitz and glamour.

The Girl from the Savoy is Dolly's story of survival. It is also Loretta's story. Loretta is already a star, but fading, she's also Perry Clements' sister and these three characters come together and create this wonderfully detailed story of life in the theatre.

Also, interwoven throughout, is the voice of Teddy, Dolly's sweetheart. His story is heartbreaking and raw, exposing the true horror of the trenches and the after-effects for some of the men and boys who fought so bravely for their country.

The story flows so well and the characters are so interesting that the pages just fly by so quickly.

Jul 01, Amy rated it really liked it. This one hit all the high notes for me. I just loved it. Something about it. The setting, the writing, the characters, and the character of it.

I love this age. Historical Fiction Set in the Jazz Age. I'm not going to describe it, but I will say it captured a feeling.

It was a beautiful book. The stage and the lights and the beautiful hotel and the tea rooms and music halls.

And the relationships contained within, and how hard it is after the war, when each of the characters are fee 4. And the relationships contained within, and how hard it is after the war, when each of the characters are feeling its effects.

There is loss, and love, and beauty, and stardom, and hopes and dreams, and a whole host of other things going on within its pages.

This book will remain in my heart. I actually think I am going to end up completing four of my five lists this year.

When you love a topic and it speaks to you, its not hard to do. Sorry to review the book so late. Personally I hate not to do it on the spot or within a day.

Feb 09, Laura Lee rated it it was amazing. Hazel Gaynor is one of my new fave authors. She never disappoints. London, , people are still dealing with the aftermath of WWI.

Loretta is a famous revue actress and Dolly is a wannabe. They meet up together and hatch a plan to give them both what they want.

In the meantime there are lost loves and sad memories. Everyone has their own heartache and way of dealing with it.

The characters are sympathetic and easy to like. It's a long book but didn't feel like it. I enjoyed every minute. Jun 30, Trish at Between My Lines rated it really liked it Shelves: irish-authors , historical-fiction , reviews-done.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This review was originally posted on [Between My Lines] Are you looking for a historical fiction that is well researched, offers you an opportunity to fly back to a distant era and feel every emotion as if it were actually you living that life?

And that is the strong point of this author's writing for me. She creates vivacious characters and then envelopes you in feels for them.

Elegant and Glamorous Setting The setting of the London Savoy Hotel felt luxurious and added an elegant, glamorous backdrop.

I have a fondness for hotels in books and real life and I think they make a fab setting. We see both sides of a spectrum via : - Dolly who works as a maid at the hotel.

But while her days are spent scrubbing and polishing, her imagination soars and she dreams of another life. And she doesn't just dream, she chases and pursues that vision.

I want to dance to a different tune. She is living Dolly's dream but is battling her own demons that none of her audience know anything about.

It is usually followed by disappointment and too much gin. The war years have altered both of their lives and they have both lost men that they loved.

And both are guarding secrets. This backdrop of heartache along with their determination to live life fully despite the sadness that overshadows them just inspires me so much.

Bittersweet romances There is romantic storyline which I enjoyed. However the strong point of the book for me was the characters and their growth.

The bittersweet direction that the book took was believable and heart wrenching. Actually now that I think about it, heart wrenching is the theme for all of this authors books.

My strings were well and truly tugged but when writing is this uplifting, I can forgive her. I'd recommend this to you if you like historical fiction, lavish hotel settings and genuine characters that melt your heart.

Thanks to Harper Collins Publishers for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Jun 10, Meg - A Bookish Affair rated it really liked it Shelves: , fiction , historical-fiction. It's set in the s in London and is told from the perspective of three characters.

It is the story of Dolly, a young woman who dreams about being on stage singing and dancing. For right now, she is a maid at one of the nicest hotels in London, The Savoy.

There is also Loretta May, a woman who is already famous on the stage. The third narrator is Teddy, Dolly's first great love. This is a story of love and making a life for one's self under the constant shadow of war.

Oh, the s in one of my favorite cities of the world - this book drew me in from the beginning. There are so many parallels between Dolly and Loretta.

Dolly is striving to be a singer. Loretta already has made it. Both of them have been greatly affected by the war. Although Teddy is Dolly's boyfriend, I was a bit confused by his part in the story.

Dolly and Loretta have so much in common and Teddy's narrative was vastly different. It was a bit jarring to go from Dolly or Loretta to his narrative.

I loved the setting! The s in London are so exciting. I thought the author did a really good job of showing the glitz and glamour of the decade set against the shadow of war that still is affecting the characters even though the war is over.

It was interesting to see what London was like during that time period. Overall, this was a great introduction to Gaynor and I would really like to read more from her going forward.

She has a great way with creating characters and evoking a very vivid time and place! Definitely my favourite of Hazel Gaynor's novels to date, this story of two women in s London is evocative of a Downton Abbey era, albeit set for the most part in the city of London.

It might be only January, but I'm guessing I'll be remembering Dolly and Loretta and life in the Savoy long into Highly recommend.

The beginning of the novel pulled me into the story and initially I found the protagonist, Dorothy Lane likeable and sympathetic. The Prologue shows us Dorothy, "Dolly" saying a difficult goodbye to her beau, Teddy, as he heads off to war.

Subsequent chapters follow with us getting to know Dolly after the war is over, she tells us about her ambitions for a better life. She's taken a new job as a maid at the fancy Savoy Hotel, where movie stars from Hollywood often stay.

Dorothy would like to see her name in lights and keeps her eyes open for a way to achieve her dreams. Loretta May, has already achieved Dolly's dream of becoming a famous actress and gives a glimpse into what it's like to live life as a star.

Teddy's story is narrated from the year I read a lot of fiction and I finish somewhere between seventy-five and a hundred books a year.

I don't finish every book I pick up anymore, I believe life's too short to read books for pleasure that you don't find pleasurable.

I always have high hopes for every book I pick up and start reading and I usually give books one hundred pages to win me over and if they don't, I feel I've at least given them a fair chance.

There are far too many books out there waiting to be read, for me to spend my time reading ones I don't like. My problem with this book was that I didn't grow to like the characters, they all felt flat and two dimensional to me.

Another issue I had was much of the background for the story was repeated multiple times which stalled any forward momentum the story had.

If a novel doesn't have me rooting for at least one character by the time I've waded two hundred pages into it, it seems clear to me that it's not a book I'm going to enjoy.

At the middle point I considered skipping to the end of the book to see how the story is resolved but I realized that I wasn't invested enough in the characters to even do that.

The great thing about books is that tastes and perceptions vary widely, what I like you might not and vice versa. The other reviews I read on-line were all very favorable and I'm likely to be in the minority with my less than favorable opinion, I usually am.

So, I wouldn't let my experience turn you away from this book if you've been looking forward to reading it.

But as I've already said it wasn't for me. View 1 comment. Well, this is it really, my last book of It just came in a couple of days ago, a wonderfully crafted story, accompanied by a gorgeous looking cover and a lovely tale to immerse myself into and welcome the new - really happy I had the chance to read it, it was well worth it because the prose was truly masterfully crafted.

Apr 02, Jennifer S. Brown rated it it was amazing Shelves: historical-fiction. I'm a sucker for a s book and this one is such a fun romp through London.

A maid who aspires to become a chorus girl. I love a story with a satisfying ending not necessarily the one all wrapped up in a bow and this one delivered.

R but it was this third release The Girl from the Savoy which really sparked my interest and made me want to read my first Hazel Gaynor.

Thankfully I wasn't one bit disappointed and anyone else I know reading this book feels the exactly same way. The author has su Why on earth did I leave it so long to read a book by Hazel Gaynor even if said book was utterly fantastic?

The author has such an incredible way of sucking you into the story and time period that you find this book extremely hard to put down.

Yes it is quite hefty at over pages but it doesn't drag in any way as you are so absorbed in the story of the irrepressible young girl Dolly Lane with big dreams and ambitions who only wants to see herself on the stage doing what she loves best.

Although the cover for the UK edition of this book is nice for once I fell totally in love with the US cover and normally it is always the opposite way around for me.

But the cover is only one minor aspect even if it is what catches people's eyes in a bookshop it's what's inside that counts and here the plot,characters and setting jump out at you from the pages as the reader is made to feel they are transported back in time to the roaring twenties the era of The Bright Young Things.

The book is set in the early 's when the shadows of World War One still hang over the world, men and women are struggling to come to terms with all they have witnessed and endured.

It is hard to pick up the pieces after witnessing such horrors and devastation but a chink of light is appearing. The upper classes are enjoying wild raucous parties full of dances and merriment.

The theatres are full to capacity and maybe there is hope for the future. War altered people in so many ways and now change and movement needs to happen in all aspects of life.

Women are determined to fight for their liberties and independence. As Hazel says 'The past is a vibrant colourful world in which people fell in and out of love, fought for their beliefs, faced poverty and fear about their families.

Not so very different to modern life at all'. That is is so very true but the people living in the 's would be delighted at just how far we have come in under years even if not every aspect of today's society are not all positive.

Our heroine Dolly wants to be at the centre of everything in this bright new creative world but there is alot to experience before her hopes can come true.

The prologue opens in in a Lancashire town as Dolly waves goodbye to her true love Teddy Cooper. Conscription has played a part in their forced separation and Dolly despite her optimism of believing he will be back before people knows he has gone, deep down she understands life will change but can they claw back some sense of normality once everything has been dealt with.

Fast forward 7 years later and Dolly is now in London alone and working as a maid for the upper classes which is not what she wanted for her life but needs must.

Dolly has always been put down and made to feel like she cannot achieve anything but this girl is a person of character and strength and the reader can see a spark deep within Dolly waiting to burst forth.

She is someone who knows what she wants and will achieve it not by ruthless means but through sheer hard work and determination.

She will get there eventually but when faced with this comment you do wonder is it all worth it? You will never become anything'.

As Dolly is rushing for an interview in the famous Savoy hotel in London she literally bumps into Perry Clements a struggling musician returned from the war.

This chance meeting will instigate a series of events which will have a profound effect on Dolly. Dolly is accepted for the job in the Savoy and here is where the book begins to shine as the authors writing comes alive.

Her descriptive abilities make the hotel feel like a character itself and it was fascinating to read about a world where quite often only the privileged few get access too.

Viewing the hotel and the world of The Bright Young Things from Dolly's eyes was fascinating and full of such rich and interesting detail.

It has a personality all of its own. It casts a sort of spell on people the moment they walk through the door and step into the front hall'.

I can say I felt the exact same about this book as it cast a spell on me so much that I read it in two sittings and was sad to turn the last page.

The story is told from three perspectives that of Dolly, Teddy and Loretta. Teddy's chapters are heart breaking, moving and so incredibly raw and honest.

Told so simply yet everything the author wanted to convey was there and as you reach the conclusion of his storyline you find yourself letting out a sigh and realising the beauty of what Hazel had written.

That a character had never given up hope but in the end had to make an unbearable decision to move on through tears and hurt through no ones creation except external world events.

Loretta is a star at the end of a glistening career struggling with internal emotions and happenings. Her reluctance to give in and accept the inevitable future will tear you apart but her relationship with Dolly and her goal to see a brighter future for the young girl is to be cherished and applauded.

Loretta is tormented by the past, holding in too many secrets and turning a blind eye to the inevitable. She is a strong woman but I understood how she was reluctant to let go without making sure she had done her best with everything in the present whilst preparing for the future.

The connections between Perry, Dolly and Loretta once established flow naturally throughout the storyline and do make you believe' wonderful adventures await those who dare to find them'.

Dolly herself is comparable to Loretta not in terms of background, social standing or wealth but how she has also suffered and an event is hanging over her tearing her apart.

She needs some resolution before she can fully embrace her true destiny. Without ever stepping onto a battlefield, I too was wounded'.

This story tells Dolly's journey to peace and happiness incredibly well and highlights just what a special, gifted storyteller Hazel Gaynor truly is.

She brings the past to life in such a scintillating, dazzling way that that you will be sorry to leave the characters behind.

What sets this book apart from other historical fiction that may be out there at the moment is the attention to detail and the simply sublime writing.

There were so many sentences where I felt the need to stop and take stock for a moment and normally I race through a book where as here I wanted to savour every moment.

Hazel has done impeccable research and clearly enjoyed the entire process of writing this book as the characters, plot and setting are all covered to perfection.

I found myself equally enamoured with both Dolly and the glamorous movie star Loretta May even though they are poles apart in terms of backgrounds and careers the author established how in the end we are all the same.

We have aspirations for ourselves some are achievable some or not. We have challenges and difficulties. People can sense Dolly is unique and destined for great things and so too can Loretta as she wants to harbour Dolly's talents and know that in addition to her career she has left a legacy and helped someone see their goals come true.

What I did enjoy was that yes in a way this was a rags to riches story but yet it wasn't too in your face.

I wouldn't have liked it if the story became too seedy and Dolly was hurt or experienced the nasty side of the world she inhabited.

Instead it was so tastefully written and I grew to love Dolly and Loretta in equal measure even if Loretta's story pulled at the heartstrings.

Her willingness to help others and hide her own suffering was admirable to say the least. At the beginning of each chapter there was a quote which I soon came to learn would be features somewhere within the chapter, I found myself eager to see how said quote would fit in with the development of the story in that chapter and a contented smile would come to my face when I discovered how Hazel had weaved it in to the story.

I've not seen this done before and thought it was very clever. Hazel Gaynor really makes you feel like you have travelled back in time you believe in the characters and their stories that they actually did exist at the time where anything was achievable with some courage and strength.

The Girl from the Savoy will make you want to take a trip to London and stay in the Savoy and just sit there in contemplation imagining Dolly working there behind the scenes cleaning the rooms, trying on a dress or shoe belonging to a rich lady or movie star when she thought no one was looking.

I liked that Hazel went against the norm as it allowed the story to feel even more real and not every strand of a story has to conform to convention , she was going to reach the top and Loretta could see that in Dolly and wanted the best for her.

I felt it like a fluttering of wings in my heart'. This book will make you want to cut your hair into the flapper style and to throw a 's themed evening with dancing and cocktails galore.

The Girl from The Savoy proved to be an exhilarating journey into the past full of vibrancy, depth, honesty and emotion which provided an insightful view into a time of dazzling theatre shows and fascinating characters all seen through the eyes of a young woman who grows and develops wonderfully throughout the novel.

Yes we read of other characters viewpoints but it truly was Dolly who was the star of this book and the one who will remain with you for quite some time.

So if you find yourself looking for an intelligent, detailed, absorbing, brilliantly written story this summer this book is the one for you and I'm sure Hazel will earn plenty of new fans with this release me included.

I'm excited to discover what era Hazel will take us to next. Sep 14, Lilly rated it really liked it. I love that era. The color and smells are unique and will never come back.

Dolly is a maid at the Savoy Hotel and Loretta is a famous actress, daughter of an English aristocratic family. Dolly wishes to one day become an actress while Loretta wishes she was younger again and not famous, to have some peace and quiet.

They both hide a terrible secret. They both lead a quite adventurous love life. When the two women meet the story starts to unfold.

Now she has been listed and marked as one of the authors I will definitely keep following. I tend to tag authors with a personal kind of categorization.

For me, Hazel Gaynor is a time-traveler author. Her books are time machines that take you up on a journey throughout the whole 20th century.

She makes you feel the silk on the skin of your legs, the fabric on your body. You walk on the autumn leaves on the streets of London, you see the lights from the stage, as Loretta does.

You even struggle alongside Teddy to remember the most you can from his past. She will toy with her characters, making them change directions, create obstacles and block their way, only to lead them to her claws, while she whimsically smiles behind her whiskers, and -judging from the result- she should be.

And her characters pay the favor back. You even dare to give them a face for the big screen. It will not be bypassed. I secretly hope that I will have the chance to watch the movie someday.

And both Dolly and Loretta would not accept anything less. While I enjoy historical fiction quite a bit, I often skip over the ones featuring characters trying to break into show business.

Maybe because I live too close to Hollywood and stories like that are a dime a dozen. But this was Hazel Gaynor. And sometimes a story like that actually does catch my eye like this one did, especially when it is tied to a World War or tackles a subject I am particularly interested in.

Dolly Lane has long dreamed of a life dancing on stage, and hopes taking a job at one of the most prestigious hotels in London will bring her closer to making that dream come true.

She is immediately taken in by the glamour and vitality of the environment she finds herself in, serving the wealthy, powerful and famous.

On impulse, Dolly responds to an advertisement of a songwriter looking for a muse, not quite sure what to expect. Suddenly, she is rubbing elbows with the likes of the famous actress Loretta Mae and her brother, Perry.

They have the life she wants and aspires to, and it is impossible not to be swept up in their world.

Below that surface, however, is a past Dolly cannot quite let go of: the boyfriend she loved with all her heart whose war experience has left him broken, and a her own secrets which carries and is trying to run from.

Then there is Perry and his growing affection for Dolly, which is hampered by his love for the woman who got away and his time and memories of the Great War.

He came back a different man, pained by things he had done, unable to forgive himself. Loretta Mae, too, has her own secrets—that of illness and long lost love.

There is one scene in the novel that particularly had me in tears and still gets me teary-eyed when I think about it. It is in the final scene in the hospital as Teddy regains his memories.

All these tragedies have shaped the characters into who they became, and I could not help but fall in love with each one of them, wanting for them all to have their happy endings even when that was not possible.

The stories of the minor characters are just as compelling, especially the women who work with Dolly at the Savoy. The Savoy itself is a character.

What it must have been like during that time! Dolly, Loretta Mae, and Teddy are given a voice in the novel, the chapters alternating between each of the characters, and it is through their eyes we learn about their pasts and present.

I took my time reading The Girl From the Savoy, immersing myself in the writing and the lives of the characters. Every time I settled in to read the novel, I was immediately swept up into the world Gaynor created.

It is rich in detail and complexity. There is much more to the novel that what may at first it may appear to be on the surface. From the discussions about the war experience, something that is not glossed over, and in fact is laid bare as to its impact on those who lived through it, as well classism between the working class and the wealthy.

Gaynor does not shy away from taking on gender roles either, including entitlement of men over women, especially those with less advantage.

We see this both between maid and employer as well as in the show business realm when a person of influence has all the power to make or break dreams of a young girl.

This is also a novel about death, grieving--both life and what was or could have been--and forgiving oneself and others.

As someone who has mixed feelings about love triangles—this novel has two—I tend to base my opinion on how it all turns out in the end more often than not.

Not exactly objective, I know. I felt that in both cases the love triangles played out well and fit with the characters, although I admit to wishing things could have been a bit different for a couple of the characters.

Kudos to the author though for staying true to her characters! There was the occasional moment of things falling a little too easily into place for Dolly and at times the pacing of the novel seemed a bit slower than I might have liked.

Those are minor complaints on my part though and rather subjective. Ultimately, I found The Girl From the Savoy to be an enjoyable read, and I look forward to reading more by the author.

May 16, Margaret Madden rated it it was amazing Shelves: irish-fiction , books-i-own. Two women, two very different lives.

Dolly Lane is a chamber maid in The Savoy Hotel but dreams of being a stage star. She regularly auditions, hoping to become a chorus girl but wonders if her chance will ever come.

The post-war years have not been good to her and she tries to better herself in the only way she knows how. Surrounded by glamorous opulence, she inhales the atmosphere and feels the music in her soul.

Loretta May is the star who tabloids were made for. She oozes confid s London. She oozes confidence and class and young women aspire to be just like her.

She is hiding a secret that she longs to tell but she can't find the courage to come clean. She is concerned for her composer brother, Perry, and his emotional well-being, following his return from the war.

Together they hatch a plan to find a muse who may unlock his talent. Can a maid from The Savoy be the driving force needed?

The roaring twenties are the backdrop for this meticulously researched novel from New York Times bestselling author, Hazel Gaynor.

It opens with Dolly seeing her boyfriend, Teddy, off to war in and moves forward to the post-war decade, where men and women are still struggling to find their place in an ever-changing era.

Loretta is a shining star, yet behind her sharp tongue and glittering personality, lies a lonely girl with an ever-growing dependency on gin and opiates.

The two protagonists are a million worlds apart, yet both have a deep love for the stage. While Dolly is used to being in the throngs of the gallery, saving her pennies to afford the tickets to see West End shows, Loretta has been born into a comfortable life, where everything is handed up to her on a silver platter.

Under normal circumstances they would never meet, let alone become friends. Perry is the link that brings them together and music is what keeps the bond strong.

Each chapter begins with a quote from its content and these snippets are just wonderful. Loretta's words are both sharp and affirming, shedding light on who she really is.

Every girl dreams of being Loretta May, yet do they consider what is behind all the sequins and rouge?
