About the Book
One of those rare novels that grabs you by the heartstrings and doesn’t let go until the very last page.
Johnny Elias is a fictional rock star for the ages. His story of how he came to be inspired to write his songs is both heartbreaking and inspirational. Megan Price is the girl whose betrayal caused Johnny to pen the music that quickly becomes the soundtrack of a generation of music fans hungry for songwriting substance during the early 1990s.
Katherine Price is Megan’s talented and cunning mother. She will stop at nothing to get her way, no matter who might be standing in her path. This is a quintessential New York 1990s nostalgia trip. It’s also an open love letter to the singer-songwriter greats of yesteryear. But best of all, it’s a timeless love story of two tortured souls seeking redemption and lasting harmony.
Touching and original, this story will break your heart, uplift your soul and leave you shouting for an encore. The ultimate rock & roll love story.
