In her dazzling historical fiction debut, Jane Green re-imagines the life of troubled icon Talitha Getty in this transporting story from a forgotten chapter of the Swinging ’60s
From afar Talitha’s life seemed perfect. In her twenties, already a famous model and actress, she moved from London to a palace in Marrakesh, with her husband Paul Getty, the famous oil heir. There she presided over a swirling ex-pat scene filled with music, art, free love and a counterculture taking root across the world.
When Claire arrives in London from her small town, she is swept up by her new friends, at the epicenter of London’s new social scene where musicians are Gods, groupies are everywhere, and the Beatles and Rolling Stones rule the world. On a whim, they whisk her off to Marrakech, to stay at the palace owned by Talitha Getty, socialite, enchantress, and wife of the son of the richest man in the world.
The two become kindred spirits, but beneath Talitha’s glamourous facade lurks a darkness few can understand. Can Talitha save Claire, or should Claire be saving Talitha? As their friendship blossoms and the two grow closer, the realities of Talitha’s precarious existence set off a chain of dangerous events that will alter Claire’s life forever.
