Another Song About Love opens in the burgeoning music scene of 1980s Melbourne, when Lillie Bloom and her friends, Wendy and Anna, form a rock band. It's a time when roles for women are undergoing great change and ideals of romantic love and the nuclear family are being challenged. Determined to find success in her chosen career, Lillie juggles her music career, her love life and being a mother to her son, Jesse. As the wheels of the music industry churn through her life, the love of friends and family, and especially her son, helps Lillie survive the rocky road of sex, drugs and rock and roll.With the sexism of the global entertainment industry being questioned once again, and the #MeToo movement gaining international traction, Lillie Bloom's grit and determination is a timely testament to the strength and resilience women have needed in order to succeed in their chosen careers.A collection of songs to accompany Another Song About Love is also available on CD or online through www.janieconwayherron.com. The book and the collection of songs bring Janie's creative worlds -music and writing-- together for the first time.
