Summary
At twenty-seven years-old, George Fairweather is the voice of his generation, a poet whose talent has garnered him accolades from the literary establishment and homage from the disenfranchised, hippie youth of the late 1960s. George is the embodiment of the times with his long hair, rebellious attitude and regular use of mind-expanding psychedelic drugs. Then the sudden and tragic death of Fallon, his friend, his muse and his lover shatters his world, his sanity and nearly ends his life. Katherine is the one person who stands between George and destruction. A hanger-on, a groupie, a go-for, she's a woman George never considered for anything. Katherine idolizes George and makes it her personal mission to keep him alive, doing whatever it takes, twenty-four seven. Because of Katherine's sacrifice and devotion George slowly begins to mend his soul and rebuild a life. But guilt and gratitude make it a much different life then he'd previously led. Thirty-seven years later, George Fairweather is a husband, father and grandfather and a successful copywriter at an advertising agency. Another death, his wife Katherine's, is about to change his life again. Can dreams be resurrected? Can a life you've abandoned be taken up again? Will they let you? Is it worth it?
