Don’t Fall In Love Too Quickly – Reformation (2003)
It is now 1984 – and 'Reformation' is first in the 'Renaissance' series of interlocking novels detailing Avon's re-configuration as they make a comeback and recruit a ‘replacement’ for drummer Mike Richards, killed in 1980. It investigates the aftermath of their ‘solo’ lives since going inactive in 1983, and their involvement with Bob Geldof’s ‘Band Aid’ charity and its work to relieve the starving in Ethiopia. In the process of altruistic activity they are forced to come to terms with their status, achievements and failures, and mature as individuals. The trilogy culminates with their performance at ‘Live Aid’ and the first gaining of family responsibilities.
