Ms Rowen is a terrific writer, so talented. I loved every bit of this, there were no boring bits to skip read, no sections that sounded a bit contrived or unfeasible, and it all just flowed, so smoothly. I love books about the music industry by people who know what they're talking about, and I was certainly not disappointed by this. Chris Daley is a rainbow haired, freedom loving busker in the early 1990s who ends up married to a successful Boston lawyer, Jon, along with the whole suburbia and two kids bit. She still hankers after her old life, though, and her old musician boyfriend, Curt. We first meet her during her divorce from Jon, and the story is built up by flicking back and forth from present to past, a structure that always works for me. Another thing I liked about this book was that it wasn't predictable; there were a couple of plot developments I guessed but more I didn't, and even at 80% I still hadn't got a clue how it was going to end up!
