Gordon Meyers has neither seen nor spoken with Glenna Rising for thirty years. They met in 1968 and lived together for the better part of two years before breaking up. Gordon served in Vietnam and returned home to launch a successful consulting firm. In the ensuing years he has traveled the world, been married and divorced once, and raised a son, Alex, now twenty-five, that he adores.
Glenna was a medical student when Gordon interviewed her for a newspaper article he was writing about the raging battle for abortion reform in New York. The daughter of a physician, Glenna shared a house with fellow future doctors Biff and Robin. It was a crazy, turbulent time and Glenna was smart, beautiful, and sexually free. Gordon was instantly mesmerized by her.
