I loved this book. It's a must read for anyone who loves family, travel, and falling in love.
In his first novel Pearsall captures a naïve yet promising window in U.S. history: the 1960s, seen through the eyes of the young and bright Quinn Norquist. Like many Americans, Quinn is the product of hardworking immigrant grandparents who settled in America, started a business, and raised their children to be good and hardworking citizens. In Counterpoint Pearsall's rich descriptions of Quinn's coming of age in San Francisco, Norway, and Singapore return the reader to a time in life when all things are possible. As Quinn navigates his way through young adulthood, Pearsall's specific descriptions of place and heartfelt dialogue between characters transport readers back to their first job out of college, the excitement of new love, and discoveries of traveling the world for the first time
