The year is 1974, and aspiring songwriter Casey Bradley is just eighteen years old when handsome, charismatic singer Danny Fiore sweeps into her life and turns it upside down.  The first time she looks into Danny's turbulent blue eyes, Casey is ready to toss aside her entire future for a man who will almost certainly break her heart.

Together with guitar wizard Rob MacKenzie, Casey writes the songs that catapult Danny to a fame beyond their wildest imaginings.  But life with Danny isn't what she expected.  The road to success is loaded with land mines, and rivers of darkness flow through her troubled marriage.  Every time Danny breaks her heart, it's Rob who picks her up, dusts her off, and glues the pieces back together.

It isn't until she suffers an unimaginable loss that Casey begins to question who she is and what she really wants from life. As she searches for herself amid the wreckage, she discovers the bittersweet truth that the choices a woman makes at thirty can differ vastly from those she made at eighteen.

C.R.'s Review (Between the Pages Guest Reviewer)  

This is one of those books that hooks you on page one and doesn't let you go until the last page.

Being brought up to do what is generally considered the right thing by others doesn't always mean you should follow through, especially at the expense of your happiness. For example, would you cancel your wedding and change your whole life to follow your dream? Four weeks before her wedding Casey is introduced to her brother's friend who is interested in her music. That's when she realizes she doesn't love the man she is marrying the way a wife should. So she decides to follow her heart, which is "Danny", and her love for writing music. The book doesn't sugarcoat what musicians and their families go thru to make it to the top.

I give this book Four Stars because I could definitely read it again.
