About The Book:
Claire grew up in a small town, far from the glitz and glamour of London. Ridiculed by her stepmother, Linda, and harboring a painful crush on her brother’s best friend, she has begun to outgrow the life laid out before her. On the cusp of adulthood in the late 1960s, Claire yearns for the adventure and independence of a counterculture taking root across the world.
One day a chance encounter leads to an unexpected opportunity. Whispers of a palace in Morocco. A getaway where famous artists, models, fashion designers and musicians—even the Rolling Stones—have been known to visit.
When Claire arrives in Marrakesh, she’s swept up in a heady world of music, drugs 2and communal living. But one magnetic young woman seems to hold sway over the entire scene. Talitha Getty, socialite wife of a famous oil heir, has pulled everyone from Yves Saint Laurent to Marianne Faithfull into her orbit. Yet when she meets Claire, the pair instantly connect. As they grow closer, and the inner circle tightens, the realities of Talitha’s precarious life set off a chain of dangerous events that could alter Claire’s life forever.
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!)
