Eighteen-year-old Devi Bennett is surrounded by mysteries: her unknown heritage, a recurring dream about an African tribal ceremony, an inexplicable attachment to a certain tree and a psychic ability she'll never understand - unless she finds her biological parents. Things take a shocking turn when she meets Baron, an intense and alluring energy healer who receives prophetic dreams which all seem connected to her.

Step into the powerhouse life of Bull Meecham. He's all Marine -- fighter pilot, king of the clouds, and absolute ruler of his family. Lillian is his wife -- beautiful, southern-bred, with a core of velvet steel. Without her cool head, her kids would be in real trouble. Ben is the oldest, a born athlete whose best never satisfies the big man. Ben's got to stand up, even fight back, against a father who doesn't give in -- not to his men, not to his wife, and certainly not to his son.

I love this story. I love the sweeping emotions and difficult frustrations experienced by the Meechim family. There are few stories that give witness to life in the 60's this well. I savor the nobility of the Corps, the pride of the Marines and the gentility of the Old South. I appreciate the rich personalities of the chatacters, especially in their imperfectness. I lived much of this life myself, tho less extreme than the Meechim's experience. I found out that I lived on the same base and attended the same school as Mr. Conroy. Thank you for allowing me to re-experience my growing up. What a treasure! Mr Hill was superb in giving this story life, in the quality he gave each character and their variations. 5 stars!
