Voices

Robert Yehling

Music. Love won, lost, regained. Festivals. Tours. Legends. Welcome to Voices.

Legendary rock and roll singer/songwriter Tom Timoreaux, who like many began during San Francisco’s epochal Summer of Love, emerges from a long retirement with his band, The Fever. When his backup singer cannot tour, he brings on his estranged daughter, Christine. As they sing together and heal their relationship, The Fever tours to national acclaim—and Christine becomes a star. Meanwhile, in Italy, Tom’s long-lost “love child,” Annalisa, views a Fever concert streamcast and must decide whether to reach out to a man she thought dead. Voices is a father-daughter-daughter relationship journey set against a half-century of rock and roll, where love and healing are always possible and music speaks louder than words.

Advance Praise for Voices

Voices captures the echoes of an historic time beautifully through characters who lived it—and then embedded its greatest stories and lifestyle elements through their music and lives.”

“A story that reminds me of a great time, and also captures being a songwriter and the power our songs possess.”

—Marty Balin, Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship; Member, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

"Voices speaks volumes to the importance of the relationship between fathers and daughters. . . . The tour that Yehling presents in Voices will no doubt take music lovers through the past as they journey through decades of rock and roll and pop music in America."

Book Corner, Los Angeles Wave

"The memories, the allusion to real rock performers, the music of the day, the times and the heartfulness of human relationships, all make Voices a magical tour. If you are a music lover, you’ll love it. Nostalgic and warm, it is also raw and real. An enjoyable book. I highly recommend Voices!"

—Ann, Amazon Review

"In his paean to the rock-and-roll era, Yehling has crafted a vision of an idealistic band—no doubt based on musicians he has worked with—which preserves this period’s original fervor for music emblematic of a great generation. Rock fans who know the tunes and bands mentioned throughout the story will love this book."

—Peter H. Green, author of Radio: One Woman's Family in War and Pieces

"Voices is the story of a father’s love and self-discovery. It also has many references to situations in rock and roll history that may be true—the interweaving of fiction with real references adds many intriguing layers. Robert Yehling is a master storyteller and he’ll transport you, heart and soul, to poignant times in history, and in a rock star’s life, that make him the man he is."

—Starling Roberts, Amazon Review
