The author describes the crumbling of the American Dream in 1929. Caldwell's words are prescient for today. The American Dream then, and now, is a progressive one -- and conservatives then, and now, hate it and try to undermine it. In 1929, bankers and political conservatives caused and aggravated the Depression.

In Ceremony of the Innocent, Caldwell displays insight into the ways of the world, with a well-told story about love, the marriage agenda of males and females, and tragedy. The theme of the book is how the American people have been lied to and launched into foreign wars, with many dying for the banking cartels and so-called "conservatives" who play games with the people. She writes of the betrayals by cartels of oligarchs. The grand plans for corporatist monopoly are covered in this one book, eloquently. Taylor Caldwell truly is one of the great writers. You will recognize America today, including the role of the Murdock/Ailes media and right-wing distraction radio. ( )
