A novel of uncommon daring and intelligence, The Antonym of Apathy leads us through an inspiring tale of hope, passion and revolution. Guided by a string of heroic female characters, each generation passes on their gifts of wisdom and accomplishments to the next to bring their shared vision of a society based on equality. Under the weight of Hitler's persecution of the Jews, the U.S. government, spearheaded by the first lady, creates a secret program to safe harbor Jewish refugees. The refugees are quietly raised in the town of Larkspur on a top secret military base in the New Mexico desert. Ava, a young refugee, horrified by the dawn of the nuclear era, dedicates her life to science in hopes of combating the creations of war. Her teenage daughter, Gloria, sets out to carry on the dreams of her mother, and reconcile the many unknowns of her family's past. We follow Gloria's harrowing journey into the heart of the country she for so long dreamed of belonging. The story explores a triumphant and soulful look at a painful time in America's past with a revelatory new vision for America's future.
