    My memories of the 1960s are vague having been only a child during the decade However Patricia Adams Farmer brings the key events of that pivotal time to life with extraordinary style Her skillful use of language elucidates scenes and evokes emotion the way a master artist paints a picture layer upon layer until I was there at Van Gelder's sipping tea on the beach at Laguna taking in the salty air in Watts swept up with the crowd rushing to see RFK even to Viet Nam witnessing an unthinkable atrocityFrom the first chapter the main character drew me in Madeline Prescott was like a new friend I wanted to know and about I was touched by her tenderness and impressed with her tenacity She isn't flawless On the contrary she's fully human making her even compelling I felt privileged to be a part of Madeline's spiritual journey As her search evolved I was challenged to consider my own spiritual perspectivesThis is the perfect book for a study group or book club Its multiple facets provide many opportunities for open conversation as well as self reflection and revelation
