Fred and Lorraine Stone met at the famous Woodstock music festival in upstate New York. And as all couples must, they grew up just not in the same direction. Now in their forties, Fred has become Frederick, a sell-out accountant whose last vestige of his free-wheeling years is a vegetarian diet. Meanwhile, Lorraine, who now goes by the name Chandra (Sanskrit for changeable), has morphed into a psychology teacher and animal rights activist.

When Chandra suddenly moves out, Frederick turns back to Woodstock, that magical time, for answers. Can he discover what went wrong and reclaim their summer of love? Or has marital harmony left them behind for good?

In A Marriage Made at Woodstock, Cathie Pelletier takes an honest and hilarious look at a marriage on the verge of dissolution-and how hard it can be to reconcile who we once were with who we have become.
