About this product
- DescriptionA saga of Blossom's unconventional family of five women, whose lives are bound by a Vietnam-War draft dodger David, immersed in the Yorkville subculture of the hippie daze of Toronto. The vel draws the reader into a web of liaisons -- into David's love affair with Blossom's mother Liza, his covert dealings with her friend Anna, as well as the mysterious Helena. The story is brought to the present through the lives of the women's daughters who discover that their family secrets have been sculpted -- literally -- into an art form that imparts a sense of homecoming and alludes to a more hopeful future.
