The Secrets Of The Cave Summary

The Secrets Of The Cave by Phillipa Bowers

Betty Barnes has been largely brought up by her older sister, Kate, in a small West Country village. Betty, however, dreams of the bright lights of Hollywood and being a movie star. Day-dreaming is one way for her to escape the realities of school life where Betty is cruelly bullied because her sister is living in sin with a married man and is rumoured to have used her healing skills to help more than one local girl out of trouble.Betty has also inherited psychic and healing gifts from her forebears. Like her sister, she also experiences memories of an earlier time when she was the local Wise Woman, guardian of a nearby mystical cave. However, when Betty gets into trouble at school, she feels that no one - not even her sister - understands her, and she runs away to the biggest city she can think of. London in the 1930s is hardly a hospitable place for a young teenage girl to find her fortune, and instead of a glittering acting career, Betty has to reinvent herself as Foxy - a stripper in a Gentleman's Club. But Betty cannot turn her back on her magic forever...
