In her first novel inspired by a true story, Jane Green re-imagines the life of troubled icon Talitha Getty in this transporting story from a forgotten chapter of the Swinging '60s. From afar, Talitha's life seemed perfect. In her 20s, and already a famous model and actress, she moved from London to a palace in Marrakesh, with her husband, Paul Getty, the famous oil heir. There she presided over a swirling ex-pat scene filled with music, art, free love, and a counterculture taking root across the world. When Claire arrives in London from her small town, she never expects to cross paths with a woman as magnetic as Talitha Getty. Yearning for the adventure and independence, she's swept off to Marrakesh, where the two become kindred spirits. But beneath Talitha's glamorous facade lurks a darkness few can understand. As their friendship blossoms and the two grow closer, the realities of Talitha's precarious existence set off a chain of dangerous events that could alter Claire's life forever.

After clashing with her step-mom, Cece leaves her small town for London. She lands a job in a department store, and begins transforming herself into a glamorous it girl. When she begins dating a music promoter, she quickly befriends a rock stars girlfriend and finds herself traveling with the band to Marrakesh. There she meets Talitha Getty, and finds herself in the midst of drugs and wild orgies.

This was a well written, engaging story. The characters were fascinating, almost hypnotic. The book was hard to put down, I found myself reading long into the night. The lifestyle of the rich and famous was absolutely crazy. With all of the attention, easy drugs, and risk taking, I see how they burn out quickly. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author. ( )

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. ( )
