Rock and Roll Never Forgets by Barbara S. Stewart Review

Rock and Roll Never Forgets
(Rock and Roll Trilogy #1)
Barbara S. Stewart

Beth Morgan is a young woman who’s just been given the ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to meet her favorite band, Traveler. That meeting leads to a chance encounter with her idol, the band’s lead singer, Andy Stevens. What follows is a love story. A journey through the peaks, valleys and trials of a relationship lived in the public eye; the miles they traveled together through his career in the music business, and her struggles to stay obscure in a world she never really settled into comfortably. In the end it's all about love, fate, and what the heart can't hold back.

Barbara Stewart (7/13/1959) was born in Havre de Grace, MD, and grew up in southeastern Pennsylvania, and the central east coast of Florida. She resides in Middleburg, FL with her husband Gene.

Barbara has worked in the electronics industry, and most recently in healthcare. She's a volunteer for the American Cancer Society, and won the Hope Award for volunteerism in 2009.

She writes love stories that usually evolve from music - a song she hears that paints a picture, and refers to her writing as 'the sound-track of her life.' Sprinkled through her stories are humor and sadness based on experiences shared with family and friends.

A reviewer on Amazon recently said, "This isn't a romance, it's a love story." (readingmaven)

"As a new writer. I hope you will continue my journey, travel with me, see what song inspires me next, and I hope that you see more growth with each page you turn."

She finds great enjoyment in reading - it's an escape, a journey into new and different places - but her favorite genre is romance. She loves to explore and support other self-published authors.

This story is uncommonly über romantic compared to most stories I come across these days. I would classify it as contemporary romance and not erotic in the least. It is super sweet, almost fairy tale-isk yet somehow still down-to-earth. Everyone seems to go on and on about what an ugly cry book it is, but to me it's more of all included full book. The lives are rich in things that really mean something instead of useless nonsense— "A Life Well Lived. " This is the type of book that women of all ages and walks of life will love. It's got a little of this, little of that, something in there to which everyone can relate.

When Beth and Andy first met, it's like insta-love. They can just see something in the other. No matter what happens throughout the entire book, their special link is always there.
Despite this connection. They can't always seem to get on the same page.
"Do you ever think about tomorrow?"
"'Tomorrow' isn't a day of the week, Bethy. I just kinda roll with today."

There are several ups and downs of regular life they go through. The story twists and turns. I loved the knowledge and history of music, real people and places. Beth's wonderfully close family is a treasure, canning, sewing, quilting, spending time together. There's a certain elegance to everything. I really love the symbolism of the quilt throughout.
I want my life to be remembered as a quilt. Wrap it around you. Let it warm you. Each of you is a piece of my quilt of life. Each of you put there for a different reason. Maybe your block of time was a small one, maybe you were the center block of color in a particular pattern in the quilt of my life, but each of you, are an integral piece.

Beautiful story.
