is a series of five novels by LK Hunsaker. It comes as the culmination
of twenty years of character development, story development, and
research into the turbulent Seventies mixed with the even more turbulent
world of music. Societal aspects highlight issues revolving around
family, parenting, and friendship. This is all disguised behind
lingering and passionate romance mixed with laughter and drama,
written for adults but safe for 15+.
has been writing creatively since childhood and became obsessed
with noveling in 1996 when she wrote the first scene of Rehearsal,
a story that was meandering through her brain since her early teen
years. That one scene, involving an old dock and a couple trying
to discover themselves within each other, expanded into notebooks
full of lined paper covered in pencil. The story grew well out of
the bounds of one book. Even over five books, it swells to an average
of 650 pages each. There is no filler. No passages of description
will make the reader skim through. The dialogue is true. The characters
are real, real enough readers find it hard to believe they are only
characters in a novel.

and societal issues, heavy with dialogue, more sensual and adult
as the series progresses and the characters grow older, but never
vulgar or overly explicit.
