“I would like readers to get a feel for life at a small-town college in a different era, and the atmosphere of a woman’s dormitory,” explains author Linda Gould. Based on her own experiences as a college student, Gould shares with readers her book, “The Rock Star’s Homecoming” (published by iUniverse).

“The Rock Star’s Homecoming” takes place in the mid-1980s in the Appalachian foothills at Glendary College, the epitome of a small-town college. Calm and studious on the surface, the mixture of jocks, religious fanatics and hippies creates a powder keg just waiting to explode. The igniting spark comes in the form of the Sunburst, a homegrown rock-and-roll band whose members go out of their way to break campus rules. Finally, at a late-night concert, they go too far, and the band members are expelled.

It's been two years since the band's departure, and the Sunburst has made it big in New York City. Excited by the Sunburst's phenomenal success, the college students rally to hear them play again. Soon a groundswell builds to woo the musicians back to campus to perform at Glendary's homecoming dance.

But this isn't any average homecoming – this is a rock star's homecoming – and the college is about to ignite once again.
