Is he the key to helping these women or can music unlock the answers in time to save them all?
“A travel through generations interconnected by the love of music and a story that defines the true meaning of love at first sight. Ms. Elam Dauw gives us an intelligent male character who goes above the call of duty for love. This is a story that charms audiences and proves that true love is worth fighting and waiting for!”
“This novel struck multiple chords with me, being at once sadly poignant and beautifully romantic. Ms. Elam Dauw’s excellent narrative paints a vivid and endearing portrait of each one of her characters. I wanted to be in love and be loved in exactly the same way as Ellie (in Part 3). This is a very moving novel.”

By the Time We Got to Woodstock: The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Revolution of 1969 [Kindle Edition]
(Book). A fast-paced, fun, and sometimes brutal look at America’s most volatile and creative year in music 1969: a time of euphoria and devastation, freedom and assassination, revolution and retribution, moonwalks and sit-ins, love-ins and race riots, sex, drugs, and guns. Idyllic college campuses became killing fields and inner cities went up in flames as the drumbeat of popular music tried to drown out the drums of war. 1969 was birthed through the visions and violence of 1968. By the Time We Got to Woodstock breathlessly documents a year that saw more music-as-manifesto and rock-as-revolution than ever before. At one mad outdoor party after another from Miami to Denver, and from Woodstock to Altamont cracks in the promised hippie utopia quickly turned to canyons. This was the year that saw the Beatles go supernova while Bob Dylan hightailed it to Nashville. From the Byrds, Joan Baez, Jimi Hendrix, the Airplane, and Janis Joplin to the Velvet Underground, the Mothers of Invention, Funkadelic, and the Fugs, 1969 stands up as a decade-smashing anomaly in the annals of rock’n’roll captured gloriously in this blistering book.
