An Arrow to the Heart
One of the big problems of our present day and age is the confusion and unrest produced by our new-found sexual freedom. Hundreds of years of a double standard of behavior are not abandoned in a day any more than restraint is an automatic response to the opening of Pandora's box! In addition, the number of children raised in broken homes or having two or more fathers or mothers presents problems parents and society have not had to deal with in large numbers prior to this age of increased freedom and less willingness to put up with stressful, difficult life situations. The problems inherent in attempting to sustain-even synergize-a relationship between a divorced, attractive, middle-aged mother and an equally attractive divorced father, would not seem overly difficult were it not for the wild card in the game-an equally attractive and precocious 18-year-old daughter! An Arrow To The Heart is about how three people-Jack Diamond, hero of the story Master Of The Welded Bead; Kirsten, a sculpted steel artist and welding instructor who takes over Jack's job at Morgan River Shipyard, and the wild card, Elvie, Kirsten's 18-year-old daughter-manage to work out a synergistic relationship despite all the human foibles of jealousy, fear, desire, need, etc. as balanced by two main ingredients: instinctive restraint, and communication.
