THIS IS PERFECT ADVICE FOR JEFF! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
When The Band Came To Town by: H. Lewis Foster
reviewed by: Bec
In the swinging Sixties, life gets rockin’ for Jeff McInnery when a new band plays at the local pub. Caught up in lead singer Danny Speed’s cool, Jeff sneaks a kiss. But being found out as homosexual could stop Danny’s hot career fast, and even land him in jail. With harsh words, Danny leaves to head for fame and fortune while Jeff starts university. On campus, Jeff meets Archie Ballatine, a history student living as openly as possible. It’s an exciting new world of sex and friendship for Jeff, but then the band comes back to town.
I was hoping this book would deliver what the awesome blurb promised, and it really did! I loved the premise of this book, and the characters are very endearing, like Archie, oh my how I love Archie!
Jeff is admirable as a character because he knows who he is, and what he wants and likes, and he isn't going to hide it from anyone! This causes problems when he is attracted to Danny, who has every reason to hide away who he truly is and what he prefers.
I will not give away spoilers, what I will tell you is that this is a journey as well as a book, the journey Jeff takes to discovering what, and who, will make him truly happy!
I encourage you to read this book friends, it takes up from the late 1950's till now, and you will quite enjoy the ride! thanks H. Lewis-Foster, for giving us a book that takes us on a journey we won't soon forget!

HERE IS AN EXCERPT:
“So what’ll you be studying?”
Jeff prepared for the usual perplexed reaction when he gave his answer. “Philosophy, would you believe? God knows what I’ll do with my degree when I’ve finished.”
“You’ll fathom the secrets of the universe, Jeff.” Danny sounded utterly serious as he stubbed out his cigarette in an ashtray. Then he broke into a grin. “Now come and have a dance.”
“What?” Jeff was sure Danny must be taking the piss.
“You heard me.” Danny stepped onto the dance floor and was soon moving to the music. His hips were twisting, his knees bending, and his backside gyrating in an unbearably provocative way. “Or do philosophers not lower themselves to such things?”
