Set amidst the turbulent times of the late sixties, this beautifully honest novel brings the period to life - from the clothing and music of the day to the controversies and personal choices surrounding the country's involvement in Viet Nam. Ginny McNally must choose the path her life will take - a path that leads to love with one of the two men who pursue her, or the path to her truest love, music. And both paths tarry for a while in a little resort town called Greenwood Lake. (Contains mild sexual situations, language, and drug and alcohol use.) "Lou Grantt writes of love and loss with humor, wit, and charm. Her characters populate a landscape so rich with details of time and place that the reader is captured by every page. Historical (1960s) fiction, romance, coming of age--this book delivers and satisfies." - Dr. Cyd Ropp, Professor of Speech Communications, College of the Siskiyous.

For childhood friends Leo Kelly, Jane Devlin, and newly ordained "Packy" Keenan, the summers they spent at the lake together were times of pure magic. And no summer was more enchanting than the summer of 1948 - until a tragic car wreck killed two of their friends. The rich and prominent "Old House" families of Chicago banded together to protect their own - the driver, who was drunk, was the son of a local doctor. There was a cover-up and a vicious scandal. Leo left for the Korean War, and the three friends' summers at the lake were gone forever. . . Until thirty years later when Leo, still obsessed by the memory of Jane and the need to solve the mystery of what really happened that fateful summer, comes back to Chicago and back to the lake. Jane is more beautiful than ever, but her life has been an unhappy one, trapped in a loveless marriage and haunted by the memory of Leo. She has returned to the lake to try to piece her life back together. Disillusioned with the priesthood, Packy realizes he's in love with Jane, too. But as a best friend and confidant to Leo and Jane, he faces a difficult choice this summer: should he help his oldest friend win back the woman of his dreams or pursue what might be his own last chance for love?
