So much to love about this book. The snippets of lyrics interspersed throughout desperately need to be turned into real songs. Jane and Jesse both shine so bright. The story, the side characters, I could go on and on. Everything though comes back to Jane. Ethereal and fierce, she is someone who will rock you to the depths of your soul. An easy 10/10 must read pick. ( )

Retelling of Joni Mitchell and James Taylor's story

Songs in Ursa Major by Emma Brodie is a 2021 Knopf Publishing Group publication.

It was the summer of ’69…

That’s the whole story right there.

Off the coast of Massachusetts, on a remote island, the Folk scene is creating a buzz. Jesse Reid, a good looking and wildly popular singer is slated to appear at the big music festival on the island, but is injured in an accident shortly before he was set to take the stage.

Shoved into Jesse’s spot, local musician, Jane Quinn, faces a restless and angry crowd. Despite the rocky start, she not only survived the night, but managed to get herself noticed in the process.

While Jesse is recovering on the island, he and Jane become close, and Jane’s band ‘The Breakers’ are even tapped to open for Jesse’s upcoming tour- although Jane wants to keep her relationship with Jesse on the down-low so she'll be judged by her own merits.

It’s a heady time- but things don’t work out as well as Jane hoped, which turns out to be a catalyst for her creative juices, prompting her to write her breakthrough masterpiece- Songs in Ursa Major.

This is a quick read, somewhat based on the real- life affair between James Taylor and Joni Mitchell. It’s also an expose on the double standards in the music industry that Jane had to cope with.

This story feels nostalgic and occasionally melancholy, but it is also a story of tenacity and triumph, and a profile in the conflict of success and fame.

A solid debut!

This was an excellent story that really captivated me from the beginning. It begins in 1969 at a music festival in Massachusetts. Jesse is a famous singer on his way to perform when he gets into a motorcycle accident. Jane Quinn, a local singer and her band are brought on in a last minute scramble to replace Jesse. Fans are upset but as soon as Jane begins singing she captures the audience and her career is launched. Jesse and Jane eventually begin a relationship and struggle through the ups and downs of touring, drugs and losing their identity in a world consumed with an ideal image.
The story touches on the music industry and how it treated female singers as a commodity and they were not respected like male singers at the time. Mental illness and substance abuse were themes that also ran through this story. This was a well written story that stayed with me long after I ended it. I received a complimentary ebook from the publisher in exchange for a review. ( )

DNF at 22%. A shame, because I was really anticipating loving this., but it just wasn't working for me.
