Summary

Stella Ainsworth has settled for suburban peace with a pedantic husband, a dissatisfied daughter and a clutch of beloved grandchildren - who all take her presence in their lives for granted. Then Cameron Keene, her boyfriend from her teenage years who'd left for America to become a rock icon of the '60s, returns to England.

Much to Stella's astonishment, Cameron announces in an interview that his most famous song, which became a legendary love anthem across the world, was written about Stella and that he has come back to find her.

Any additional comments?

How pleasant to have a heroine near one's own age, not a pert 20 +. Stella has grown used to her reasonable life with a husband who has settled for dullness and her self-centred daughter, who is married to a workaholic husband. Her main interests lie with her grandchildren and the regeneration programme for the centre of the suburban town where she and her long-time best friend have lived most of their lives. However this somewhat boring situation is given a thorough shake-up with the unexpected arrival, back in town, of her boyfriend from the '60s who had become a rock'n'roll star, along with his entourage of manager, roadies and several ex-wives, intent on making a come-back tour. In a relatively short period of time the lives of all of these people will be changed, and life will never be quite the same again.
