In 1968, Patrick Golden, a Berkeley sophomore with Jewish and Irish-Catholic roots, is the face of entire generation of upwardly mobile, postwar, working-class progeny flocking to America s colleges and universities. Despite his family s modest finances, he manages to convince his father, a crusty pipe-fitter who represents the old-school beliefs and biases of the past generation, to allow him to join Charles Comstock, his affluent and socially well-connected former college roommate, at Harvard University for the summer. There, surrounded by old-moneyed aristocrats and Mayflower descendants, Patrick falls in love with Morgan Thackeray, a stunningly beautiful and free-spirited coed from one of Boston s oldest, wealthiest, and most powerful families. Their romance blossoms, despite her bigoted fathers virulent objections and menacing threats, until it is ripped apart by a dark secret Morgan is compelled to hide. Forty-one years later, Patrick, now a wealthy, divorced, retired lawyer, reconnects with Morgan in Boston at Charles Comstocks funeral, and his life is dramatically altered when he learns the shocking secret that she has been keeping.
