    Very short and sweet story about a girl (Millie) who works in the box office of the opera house and the romance/men in her life. Enjoyable read set in the 1920's.

Millie is the proud owner of a daring Egyptian bob haircut and a job at the new opera house. So when Millie meets Augustus Johnson, a rich patron of the opera house, she dares to hope for more than a just a passing smile. Will dreams come true for Millie? Or will the past forever shape her future? This was quite an enjoyable short story. What impressed me most was, in a short story, that the author was able to drag me into the time period so successfully, that I could almost taste the atmosphere. That was awesome. The story itself is well-written and I do know that I will want to read more of this author. I liked the descriptions of the settings, as well as the romance and Millie's friends as well. A great all-round story that would appeal to anyone who likes historical saga stories. Paul ARH

    Not my sort of thing. A simple and simplistic short story set in the West Midlands slightly post war. Might work for other people, but too basic and predictable for me.

    Interesting. This was an okay short fiction story to read while waiting to be called for an appointment on a rainy afternoon.

    The Girl from the Opera House by Nancy Carson is a story of a young girl called Millie who is trying to make her own way in post war Britain by working in an opera house. It is here that she meets the devilishly handsome Augustus Johnson. Yet Millie’s past creeps up on her and she soon finds out that everyone has secrets. Ok, as we all know I am not the greatest fan of the short story. Usually it is because the story always leaves me wanting more. I guess the same logic could apply for why I had The Girl from the Opera House by Nancy Carson is a story of a young girl called Millie who is trying to make her own way in post war Britain by working in an opera house.

Ok, as we all know I am not the greatest fan of the short story. Usually it is because the story always leaves me wanting more. I guess the same logic could apply for why I had a problem with The Girl from the Opera House. It isn’t a bad story; in fact it is pretty good. It has plenty of twists and some very likeable characters; it is just that the story seemed to be over just as it was beginning. As a reader I feel robbed. There are plenty of ways that Carson could have made this a full lengthy novel. Whilst I liked the characters and the storyline, I don’t feel that I was given a chance to fall in love with The Girl from the Opera House. This is a great read if short stories for the gal on the go are your thing but for me it just passed by too quickly for my personal taste. The Girl from the Opera House by Nancy Carson

    Could have been so much more It was almost like a summary of a much longer novel. A lot happened quickly in the space of a week! I enjoyed its premise and would probably enjoy the authors longer novels but as I find with a lot of short stories there isn't enough background to the characters to make it a strong enough story.
