Jacqueline is thrust into adulthood during the 1970's drug culture and the sexual revolution that follows.
To many graying, successful baby boomers, this novel is a walk down memory lane. For the rest it answers two questions. The first is, "what was really going on during this time in recent history?" The more saleable question is "what did I miss?" Generations X and Y can find parallels to their own past and may be surprised that such times pre-existed their own. The book bridges the generation gap. It is the story of a flower child's journey into womanhood. From the drug filled shores of San Francisco's Haight Ashbury to the power elite men of Washington DC. The road will take Jacqueline into a world of power that could cost her life. Sometimes in a life two paths will cross from different worlds, that chance meeting has brought you the reader to view and judge the journey. This is a novel of fiction, for your pleasure.

Rose entered the doorway. "Come in," he said to the messenger, and then he closed the door. Rose told the messenger, "Continue." The man raised his arm in a salute to Rose. Jacqueline was shocked by this sudden sharp cracking salute. Then the courier opened the box he was carrying with the same precision. Inside was an unusual clipboard, with a wooden cover on the front and a red seal on the bottom. Rose looked closely at the seal while the man was still holding the clipboard. Then Rose asked Jacqueline to please stand next to the gentleman's right. Jacqueline moved from Rose's side to the right of the messenger holding the clipboard.
After Jacqueline moved, Rose told the gentleman to proceed. With precision movement, the man turned the clipboard to face only Rose. With a gold tool, he broke the seal on the cover of the clipboard that was facing Rose. The man holding the clipboard could not see what it said, nor could Jacqueline. He held it as Rose read the document. When he was finished reading the document, Rose signaled the man to close the clipboard. The man closed and resealed the wooden clipboard. Rose placed his fingerprint in the new seal, and the man saluted and left.
Rose turned to Jacqueline and said, "Call your parents to come take Marie. Tell them we have decided to go to Jekyll Island for our anniversary. We will need them to pick her up within the hour! Pack enough clothes for one night, and give me your purse." Jacqueline did so immediately without asking a single question. Rose removed all of her identification except for the passport that he had insisted stay in her maiden name.
Rose sat deep in thought for a few minutes, and then he said, "I have been called to Washington. You will be traveling as my legal secretary. You need to call me Mr. Rosenberg and give no indication of us being married."
"What about my wedding rings," she said.
Rose replied in a firm voice, "Leave them on; you will be called Mrs. Walters. Do you understand me, darling? I love you more than life itself. This is for your protection, so just be careful. I know you are smart; you can do this. It will just be a fun trip and you are in no danger. I have just been called in for an assignment; we will be home in a day or two. I am sorry dear, this is not how I wanted to spend our first anniversary."
"Rose, as long as I am with you, I am happy," Jacqueline said as she smiled softly.
