Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 160481781X, Paperback)

Counterpoint is a story of a Midwestern family, viewed through the lives of the father and his four children. Book One of Volume I is about Lars Norquist the patriarch, and transports the reader to the first half of the 20th century. It portrays three generations of a family growing up in a small Illinois town. The Norquists build a second home on Emerald Lake in Wisconsin and it is here, at their lake lodge, that they bond as a family and develop the values and aspirations that carry them into the second half of the century. Lars's story grapples with the growing awareness of his mortality and the need to make use of what time remains of his life. Book Two tells the story of Lars's son Quinn and his life in the tumultuous 1960s. It's a tale of perfect love and dangerous adventure and sweeps from skiing in Austria to the fjords of Norway, from San Francisco to the jungles of Malaysia, to living in Singapore, and ultimately confronts the real and crushing misjudgments by the United Sates government of geopolitics in Southeast Asia
