Dear Reader,

play-high-resA mid-life coming of age story that’s part romance and part classic road-trip tale as a motif for self-discovery, Play for Me turns one woman’s mid-life crisis into a universal story underscored by the themes of motherhood, music, fidelity, and creative fulfillment. “[It] combines the soul-searching of Eat, Pray, Love with the rock ’n’ roll fable of Almost Famous to create a novel of midlife crisis with music at its core.”—Booklist
