Little if anything has been written about growing up in the shadow of the “Greatest Generation.”
A SUMMER REMEMBERED … The Lake Bradford Hotel 1947 is a coming-of-age novel set in the early post World War II era.
Fleeing divorcing parents, 16 year old Cooper Dawkins intends to become a man at a summer vacation hotel in Vermont. There he discovers that growing up involves not only hormone changes, but: bigotry, anti-semitism, cultural and religious differences, attempted murder, the death of a best friend, personal identity, forgiveness , reconciliation, not to mention competing with the returning vets.
While this May be a nostalgia piece for seniors, its main audience will be in the younger generation, for whom 1947 is a long time ago in a land far away.
