Book description
Patrick Golden is a student at Berkeley during the turbulent and vibrant late 1960s. The product of working-class Jewish and Irish-Catholic parents, he takes a huge step out of his social comfort zone when he makes the move to the storied walls of the Ivy League. Soon he’s surrounded by old-moneyed aristocrats as he joins his affluent and socially well-connected college roommate, Charles Comstock, at Harvard in the summer of 1968.

At Harvard, Patrick meets Morgan Thackeray, a stunningly beautiful and free-spirited coed from one of Boston’s oldest, wealthiest, and stodgiest families. Despite her bigoted father’s virulent objections and threats, their romance blooms—until it is torn apart by the dark secret Morgan must keep from Patrick. To protect him, she disappears, leaving his heart in tatters without an explanation or even a good-bye.

Forty-one years later, Patrick finds himself back in Boston on sad business—the funeral of his old college roommate, Charles. In a twist he could never have predicted, he reconnects with his long-lost love. After decades of doubt and confusion, he’s about to learn her secret—and his life will be dramatically altered by her confession.
