For Jesse, time had stood still for thirty years. But now, forced off the hippie commune by the mysterious death of his lover, Annie, he finds himself catapulted into the surreal terrain of post-Sixties America. He struggles to adapt, but overshoots the mark, nearly losing his soul to yuppiedom. Meanwhile, evidence mounts pointing to Jesse as the murderer of his beloved. Could he have done the unthinkable while in a drug-induced fugue state? His carefully crafted new life teetering out of control, he loses his way - until the lovely and soulful Clare helps guide him back to the garden.
