It’s 1958 and Alice doesn’t expect much from life. She works at the phone company, she spends time with her aunt May and her new friend Bill whose father owns the record shop, she plays her guitar and writes songs. Then one Friday night on the radio she hears Dorothy. Before falling in love with Dorothy, Alice falls in love with her voice. When she gets to meet her, she falls in love with her. That’s when her life changes completely as Dorothy asks her to join her band as a guitarist and as a songwriter.
In My Heart is a sweet romance. Alce is sweet and innocent, not innocent as in she doesn’t know life, more like she hasn’t let life pollute her hopes. Her story makes for an enjoyable and easy read, with just enough angst to make it interesting.
