Overview

The Tales of Megan McGuire, In The Name of Grace, is a mainstream literature novel about relationships and adversity, as well as love and mania, set partly during the passionate hippie era.

It's the late 60's. There is rioting in the cities. Hippies don their peace signs in protest of the Vietnam war. Skinny, sex and pot are the fads. Women are having nervous breakdowns and they don't know why. And back in a small rural town in Wisconsin, is Megan McGuire, a young, wealthy, white girl living in her abyss. What is her hell? Will Megan McGuire overcome her perdition and come of age?

This is a mainstream fiction novel, created to capture the volatile spirit of the 60's, 70's and 80's, as seen through the eyes of a manic depressive girl. It is a tale whose characters embrace genuine human traits and experiences. The author is honest and bold.

"Sitting about ten feet away; playing a guitar with his shirt off and his light olive brown skin shimmering, was the most beautiful (poison) I had ever seen...."

"The hours passed and I was falling heavily into the seduction of the champagne and cocaine."

Shocking...Powerful...Sensual

    BA in Literature?

    What really confused me about this book is that for someone with a supposed BA in English Literature, Pam Smith apparently does not know how to check grammer. 'Vince her younger brother was a D.J. and white wrapper.' If I was Vince, I would be embarrassed to be a 'white wrapper' The story is ok not strong but ok for something that is part fiction part truth, but the grammer and spelling errors make it almost unreadable. I suggest a good proof-reader for Pam's next book.

    Great book! Can't wait for Pam McGuires next tale!

    I was right back in the 70's with Megan McGuire. Pamela's 1st person story put me right into the main characters head where I could feel her emotions all the way through the whole book. If there is one thing I learned from reading this book is there is hope no matter how bad things seem to be at the time. McGuire writes with such beauty and realism that it kept me wanting to read more. Enjoy the book as I have.
