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 transform her - 'Cinderella-like' – into the woman he knows she deserves to be.
Once free of her abusive father and her weak, defenseless mother, the changes are 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, until her father comes back to haunt her. But will a dazzling - yet thoroughly unconventional - Prince Charming step up to claim her? And, if so, where will it take her and how will it end? Who will win and who will lose?

Martin Humphries’ Can’t Buy Me Love
Entertaining read featuring the years 1964 thru
1967 in London. Very descriptive story regarding
the social issues and changes taking place
during that period.
The main characters are vivid, well fleshed out,
colorful and interesting. They are cousins who
help each other through their awkward stages
into being successful in their ventures than they
would be without each other.
The book is a series so the ending ends abruptly
leading the reader into the next phase their lives.
I volunteered to read Can’t Buy Me Love. Thanks
to the Review Crew for the opportunity. My
opinion is my own.
