Lisa Platt is the middle child of a recently immigrated family to the United States. New York life doesn't allow for the luxuries they knew in Germany before Hitler made it impossible for the Jews to survive let alone thrive. From coat manufacturer to necktie salesman, Platt can't make it in New York so he moves the family to Los Angeles where he does find a backer who will finance his idea of a great cheap all wool coat. Lisa's life is filled with dreams of dancing, fancy parties and great wardrobe and boys.  This book is a sequel to Journey to America.
