Product description

Product Description

From bestselling, groundbreaking author Ainslie Paton comes a groovy romance about changing times, growing up, breaking out and second chances. Set in Sydney in 1975, when pants and collars were wide, hair was big, eyelids were blue and neighbours shared each other’s lives.

There’s a sexual revolution going on, but not in Gayle’s life. She’s never felt so old, so unattractive, and so helpless. Your husband asking for a divorce could do that to you. Now she’s the scandalous new neighbour, the single mum, the divorcee, who needs a job but doesn’t know how to balance her own cheque book.

And then Steve and Ray arrive in her life, the former with chocolate hair and hurt eyes, the latter with a tomboy daughter and an uptight attitude. Suddenly, being separated doesn’t feel so shameful. This is the story of how Gayle lost her home to find true friends; her marriage to find a new life; and her husband to find love.

The author writes great characters, good stories, and the emotional roller coaster that Gayle is on with her marriage break-up and single status in a world where that is still fairly uncommon is pretty well realised. The development of her relationship with Ray and with Steve is interesting but Steve seemed a bit of a stereotype which is unusual for Ainslie Paton, generally her characters have individuality and nice depth. The feeling of kids life in the 'burbs of the 70s was well done. This wasn't as good as some others of Ainlsie Paton that I have read. I don't really think it got the seventies emotional vibe - I was there and it didn't feel quite right to me; Ray was a bit too much of a snag for the seventies I reckon - a good try though. Steve was a bit creepy I thought, and I found the hot scenes with Gayle and Ray a bit too much for my somewhat straitlaced sensibilities.

I liked the fact that this was written from an Australian perspective. I could really relate to the characters and the times. It was refreshing to have a book that was so down to earth and that dealt with the mundane aspects of Australian suburban life. The pace could have been a bit faster but overall I enjoyed it. The book is much better than the cheesy cover picture.

I enjoyed the story line but found the characters a bit corny and a little too perfect. I also found the constant references to 70's songs quite irritating as it was unnecessary, it was clear the story was set in the 70's and didn't need a song catalogue to authenticate it. The story also ended a bit too abruptly for my liking. Clearly others have really enjoyed this, it was a good story but not great.

I really enjoyed this book. Living in Sydney as a young child in the '70s, this book captured that era as I remember it. Not just a simple romance, the dynamics of relationships & social issues and changes of the time are also integrated effectively into the storyline.

I'd read this author again.
