It's the summer of 1968 in New York City. Molly Williams is young, conservative, and inexperienced... and then she finds her boyfriend necking with his male roommate in a Greenwich Village restaurant. She freaks out, hitches a ride in a psychedelic van bound for Woodstock, does drugs for the first time and winds up in the medical emergency, tent in the arms of Johnson, a gentle, spiritual Asian-American who lives in a Pennsylvania commune with his old lady.That's just the beginning of a roller-coaster ride through the thrills and fears of growth and complicated relationships. Readers experience Molly's ups and downs with her...from her relationship with Johnson to an emotional, physical, and artistic love affair with her former sister-in-law. Their love scenes sizzle with lyrical eroticism, frosty, and explosive jealousy and, of course, furious food fights.
