Book Synopsis

Patrick Golden is a student at Berkeley during the turbulent and vibrant late 1960s. The product of working-class Jewish and Irish-Catholic parents, he takes a huge step out of his social comfort zone when he makes the move to the storied walls of the Ivy League. Soon hes surrounded by old-moneyed aristocrats as he joins his affluent and socially well-connected college roommate, Charles Comstock, at Harvard in the summer of 1968.

At Harvard, Patrick meets Morgan Thackeray, a stunningly beautiful and free-spirited coed from one of Bostons oldest, wealthiest, and stodgiest families. Despite her bigoted fathers virulent objections and threats, their romance bloomsuntil it is torn apart by the dark secret Morgan must keep from Patrick. To protect him, she disappears, leaving his heart in tatters without an explanation or even a good-bye.

Forty-one years later, Patrick finds himself back in Boston on sad businessthe funeral of his old college roommate, Charles. In a twist he could never have predicted, he reconnects with his long-lost love. After decades of doubt and confusion, hes about to learn her secretand his life will be dramatically altered by her confession.

Vividly describing Harvard, Berkeley, and San Francisco as they were in the late 1960s, No Fortunate Son recreates the sights, sounds, mood, and culture that defined this colorfully tumultuous and politically pivotal era.
