Book Description HTML

This novel tells two stories of self discovery, that of 34 year-old Constance, an Australian living in present day Spain, and that of her Kiwi friend Matt, 60, told in stories to her about his days as a young hippy in Australia in the late 70's. Both of them, in their respective times, are trying to find their ways in life. Constance's life is riddled with problems and bad relationships, including an abusive one with her boyfriend. However, through hearing about Matt's time as a young hippy, humorous tales about an almost forgotten period in history, a time shared by a father who she never knew, she begins to find answers that had always eluded her. Her father begins to come alive to her. With time, and some help from unexpected places, Constance finds the courage to face her many demons.
