Jane Green reimagines the life of troubled icon Talitha Getty in this transporting story from a forgotten chapter of the Swinging '60s    Claire grew up in a small town, far from the glitz and glamour of London. On the cusp of adulthood, she yearns for the adventure and independence of a counterculture taking root across the world.    When she's offered the chance to start anew in Morocco, in a palace where famous artists and musicians--even the Rolling Stones--have been known to visit, she seizes the chance. Arriving in Marrakesh, she's quickly swept up in a heady world of music, drugs and communal living. And Talitha Getty, socialite wife of a famous oil heir, seems to preside over the whole scene. As Claire is pulled into her orbit, the realities of Talitha's precarious existence set off a chain of dangerous events that could alter Claire's life forever.      … (more)

This was okay, lind of like the sixties themselves, shallow and hedonistic. ( )

Claire has always wanted to be famous and hang around the with the “IT” people. When her stepmother kicks her out. Claire decides to head to London. She is going to do it! She is going to be discovered and live her dream. It just turns out to be tougher than she thought.

Claire begins her new life as a shop girl living in a hostel in London. She just knows she is going to be discovered at anytime. She ends up meeting a young gentleman who is a manager for some up and coming artists. This turns her life around…and not for the better. She gets in way over her head with the charisma of this bohemian lifestyle.

This is a coming of age story you do not want to miss. Now, it is full of sex, drugs and rock and roll. But I loved every second of it! The only reason for the 4 stars is the plot is a bit thin. But, there is something about Jane Green which just keeps you coming back for more. Her characters are some of the best and this novel is full of them. I love the way she incorporates the true rock and roll characters into this tale. (With a bibliography!)

Need a rock and roll story you will not soon forget…THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review. ( )
