IE BOOK REVIEW The author's themes in this fabulous book range from young and tender love to old and bitter hatreds. From the misery of bedsit poverty of London in the 1960s to the power of immense wealth in the 1990s. In a time when the world was excitedly influenced by the cultured intellectualism of the new America president John F. Kennedy, MARIAN BARNARD is a young woman who falls hopelessly in love with MARC GAINES, a young American tourists who walks into the London restaurant where she works as a waitress. She discovers that he is a lieutenant in the US Army and totally devoted to the civil rights policies of JFK and his brother Robert. Marian also becomes the true love of Marc?s life but both are unaware of the obsessive adoration of Marc's mother for her only son. JACQUELINE GAINES ?

Through JIMMY OVERMAN, Marc?s best friend, we get a deep insight into the personal and American tragedy that was the Vietnam War and the soldiers who returned from it, still seeing the ghosts of their friends left behind.
