This Is Your Song, Lola Rose - Donna Hay ... bully who made her mother's life a misery until the day she died. She and her father have barely spoken since then. And Lola finds out why when, after the funeral, an embittered relative reveals a dark family secret. It turns out Eddie Lambert wasn't Lola's father at all. She was the result of a backstage fling between her musician mother and Rick Wild, guitarist with the mega rock group Poleaxe. Not only is her father very much alive, but he's also a big-haired, leather-wearing rock god. Lola tries to handle the revelation in her usual practical way, although deep down she's excited by the idea of having a family somewhere out there, and a father who might love her in the way Eddie never did. But her expectations are dashed when she finally gets to meet her long-lost dad, and discovers he's a typical rock star - spoilt and self-indulgent with the maturity of a hyperactive five-year-old.And then there's his family, who turn out to be a bunch of people so dysfunctional they'd make the Borgias looks like the Waltons.

This Is Your Song, Lola Rose follows the character of Lola, a young policewoman living a lonely life. Her mother died when she was young, ... Read the complete review
