"Drina Adams (whose real name is Andrina Adamo and whose mother was the famous dancer Elizabeth Ivory) is back again at the Dominick Ballet School in London. Here she feels "almost a new girl" after her year in the country, but she soon settles down to the life she loves.
Then at Easter she goes to Italy to meet her unknown Italian grandmother - and at Genoa she gets an unexpected opportunity to dance with the Dominick Ballet Company itself."
