About this title


"Music is spiritual The music business is not." Van Morrison If you didn't live through the 70s , open the window and feel the breeze. Read this one of a kind book. You'll witness the end of the peace and love era as big business, branding and surveillance pounce on the ideals of the youth generation. The Fiddle Case is set in the summer of 1972, the summer when everything changed. Anna and Cindy, the main characters, are both nineteen and beginning to form identities. Anna is tomboyish; Cindy, a seductress who has viewpoints on everything. While on a road trip to return a stolen fiddle to a famous musician, they deal with men, their sexuality, jealousy, innocence and money. Their car breaks down. They hitchhike, take risks and make difficult decisions. The Group, a counterculture cult as interested in finding the fiddle's owner as they are, watches their every move. On the journey, not only is Anna and Cindy's friendship threatened, but also their lives. The Fiddle Case breathes life into the sights, smells, and sounds of America culture during the early 70s. The hippie era dies, folk music goes corporate, airlines initiate security checks, and the 80s with its money markets and three-piece suits loom near on the horizon.
