Never Going Home is a wake-up tale of passionate love, intrigue, despair, and tragedy. The players in Never Going Home are alone. They find their way to one another and create a family of super-intellects. Betty, a wise eighty-five-year-old retired librarian, leads the family.
Other accomplished family members include Harold, a lawyer; Bailey, a widow and mother with an MSF degree in finance; Will, a sociologist; Bob, a bank president; Gloria, with an MBA degree; and Lenny, a Vietnam veteran who studied psychotherapy to understand his PTSD in which he relives his combat experiences. Ruby, a Las Vegas showgirl, and voted best of Vegas five years running, hearing of Lenny’s thesis in psychotherapy, surmises Lenny could be the key to unlocking her very private dysfunction.
Betty reveals the enormous wealth Harold and she accumulated investing in the military-industrial complex off a tip from an aircraft-manufacturing lobbyist Harold defended in court prior to the Vietnam War. They made millions as crony capitalists. There seems to be no challenge the family can’t rise to.
