War Time, Peace Time, My Time is a charming account of the life of Dorice Greenfield; dancer, wife, mother and now, author.

At fifteen, Dorice runs away from her evacuated school campus, and the relative safety of the English countryside, to return to a terrifying London at war; one of rationing, doodlebugs and bomb shelters.

Determined to pursue her love of dance, it isn't long before she is touring the country, performing at theatres and military bases, and receiving Nylons from American soldiers. Once considered too risqué for a good girl, dressing in sexy costumes and taking to the stage becomes a patriotic duty, buoying up the spirits of a nation of young soldiers. But amidst this fear and excitement, when she falls for a Jewish man, Dorice must face down prejudice in order to marry her love, fighting new battles as the war subsides.

Dorice Greenfield is an inspiration – a brave young woman who filled her life with adventure in the face of adversity and, in leading by example, gave her family the best start in life.
