Jane Green reimagines the life of troubled icon Talitha Getty in this transporting story from a forgotten chapter of the Swinging '60s
Claire grew up in a small town, far from the glitz and glamour of London. On the cusp of adulthood, she yearns for the adventure and independence of a counterculture taking root across the world.
When she's offered the chance to start anew in Morocco, in a palace where famous artists and musicians -- even the Rolling Stones -- have been known to visit, she seizes the chance. Arriving in Marrakesh, she's quickly swept up in a heady world of music, drugs and communal living. And Talitha Getty, socialite wife of a famous oil heir, seems to preside over the whole scene. As Claire is pulled into her orbit, the realities of Talitha's precarious existence set off a chain of dangerous events that could alter Claire's life forever.
