Some brief overview of book
David refuses to fight his father’s war, only to fight a greater battle within. Abandoned at a young age by his father, an Admiral involved in secret bombing, and sent to grow up in military school, David refuses to fight in Vietnam. The estrangement of father and son, like the nation divided, is an open wound that refuses to heal until the novel’s climax.
Overcoming emotional abandonment, David’s journey includes sex, psychedelics, soul-searching psychotherapy, and the sweeping changes of the Sixties. Raised by a stay-at-home mother, we see Linda evolve from “Little Miss Sunshine,” to a sister mourning her brother, to a protester arrested by the FBI, to a national celebrity of the anti-war movement. Linda also becomes the woman who can help David with her transformational power of love.
The characters in this novel bring to life compelling issues of the Sixties that include struggling for peace, becoming authentic people, and creating lasting love. Their journey takes us to the first walk on the moon, the Santa Barbara oil spill leading to a national environmental movement, women redefining their role in everything, hippies, the music and celebration at Woodstock.
