Synopsis

It’s the sixties, and London might be swinging, but not for our girl Edith. Raised in a miserable home full of anger and hate, life for poor Edith seems to hold little hope. But she finds plenty when she teams up with her older gay cousin, Ronnie, who makes her his mission to re-shape her into the fabulous young woman he knows she deserves to be.

Once free of her father and her weak, defenseless mother, her transformation is swift and dramatic as, suddenly, life is an exciting adventure, full of twists and turns. Edith’s coming of age becomes a roller-coaster ride of glorious highs and frightening lows, including a father who comes back to haunt her. But where will it take her, and how will it end? Who will win, and who will lose?

‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ is the first of six volumes in the ‘The Cost of Loving’ Series. If you like stories of success over adversity, family dramas and sexual diversity, then you will love Martin Humphries’ bitter-sweet voyage of discovery through some of the most exciting years in living memory. Years chock full of changes of every kind, when being gay usually spelt trouble with a capital T.

Start traveling this fascinating journey through the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s today by buying ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’. Follow Edith through London, Europe and Hollywood as she matures from troubled teenager to become an icon of her age.
