Publisher's Summary

2019…in Spain, at a remote mountain retreat center, Tyra Alström is facing her 65th birthday alone. 

It wasn’t always like this. In 1976, Alstrom, the band formed by her brother, and fronted by Tyra, had just recorded their first album and were about to embark on a European tour. After years of the pub, club, and college circuit, they were finally on the verge of success. And as one of the few "out" singers in 1970s rock, Tyra had never been short of admirers. 

But away from the spotlight, Tyra’s life was spiraling out of control. In love with a woman who was out of bounds, haunted by the dark secrets in her family, and fighting a constant battle against crippling performance anxiety, she was descending rapidly into dependence on drugs and alcohol. 

When she walked away, she wrecked the dreams of everyone she loved. 

Forty-three years later, she’s still living in self-imposed exile. She can’t imagine anyone ever forgiving her, because she finds it impossible to forgive herself. 

But then an old Alstrom song makes a surprise entry into the charts. The band are reforming…and she discovers that the love of her life is free at last. 

Can she face her demons and come home? 

And is it ever too late to say you’re sorry?

Alstrom is the latest novel by Jane Retzig, author of Boundaries, The Full Legacy, The Photograph, The Retreat, A Tale of Two Sisters, and The Wrong Woman Quartet

The music of Alstrom is available for download and streaming via all major digital music platforms.

Great.

I really enjoyed Alstrom. It’s a great story. I loved the main characters. It will take you a minute to get used to the narrator.

Together Again

Alstrom is a romantic story about a difunctional family finding their way back together despite their upbringing. This sort is different from Jane Retzig’s usual stories and one of her better. I can’t wait to listen to the Alstrom music.

A compelling story with great narration

I loved this book when I read it and was nervous to listen in case it didn’t live up to my high expectations, but Naomi Rose-Mock truly did it justice, even singing convincingly as Tyra. If you have read the book, then you won’t be disappointed. If you haven’t, then don’t miss out. The characters are intriguing and the storyline will keep you guessing. Definitely one to enjoy.
