A novel about the sixties - about a woman, a minister, who is having a breakdown and who remembers when she was a young runaway in the sixties.

Jane Covernton

 Robin was sixteen in 1966 when she ran away to San N. There she met Leona who ran from the National Ballet School to be with her drug dealer boyfriend. And, eventually, Marjory who came to San Francisco to find her daughter.

Now Robin is forty and having a breakdown. She goes back over that time, trying to understand what it was all about. Love, drugs only, consciousness?

This is an intense and poetic novel about a turbulent time.
