Sunshine on Sugar Hill: Once Upon a Time, an Australian Girl Moved to Harlem

Front Cover
ABC Books, 2009 - Australians - 310 pages
In a story that even she will admit borders on the surreal, Angela Gilltrap, ex-'Strictly Dancing' star finds herself living in Sugar Hill in Harlem, New York City. From the shores of Bondi Beach to the six-floor walk-up she shares with her boyfriend, composer/musician and international chess champion Kasaun Henry, she suddenly has to adjust, not only to her new city, but to the nuances of her new surroundings which happen to include the occasional drive-by, drug deals and daily arrests. For a performer who has always sung soul, jazz and gospel music, it is a dream come true.
