Synopsis: Against the violent backdrop of post-World War II America, John Hearne and Dory Perkins fall in love, are separated, and finally reunite
From Library Journal:
In the summer of 1948, John Hearne, a 21-year-old vet, has an an affair with high school senior Dory Perkins, his neighbor and childhood acquaintance. Before settling down, John wants to travel cross-country, ostensibly to visit California but actually to find his father, who left when John was a small boy. So John leaves New Hampshire to find his past; and Dory remains behind, working as the manager of a resort, to confront her future. The novel explores the characters in exhaustive detail, examining friendship, love, commitment, and responsibility in the process. Through minor characters and allusions to World War II atrocities and the postwar period, it looks at the social and spiritual impact of these issues. The novel is least convincing when it tries to be universal. Recommended with reservations. Michael J. Esposito, formerly with Special Libraries Assn., Washington, D.C.
