It was the 1960's and Solomon King was the first in his Irish family to attend college. When he won the scholarship, it was even more amazing. Now off to America to learn and study. Solomon couldn't wait. He met some really nice people right from the beginning but he also met one woman he couldn't forget. Petula seemed to be perfect yet they couldn't see eye to eye. Suddenly it all came together for them and back to the UK they went. Life would soon change forever.
If you are looking for a book with romance and the true message of the 60's.. this is it! Well written, this book is a guided tour through the heart of two young people and the 60's as they saw them. Characters you could find in any poster of the time period, you'll fall in love with them. I read right through this book 3 times. It was that terrific.
I did find one small issue. It does bog down in spots and seems to take awhile to get back on track, but other than that, it's a fantastic read.
I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it gave me a new perspective of the 1960's.
