Berkeley anti-war activist and would-be poet Madeline Prescott embarks on an inner quest: a spiritual journey born out of grief for a brother lost in war, a country whose leaders are cut down by violence, and a family torn apart. In a coastal town bookshop filled with odd and comforting characters, Madeline finds a temporary nest in which to heal, re-imagine hope, explore romantic love, and discover her own poetic voice.Madelines quest is set in one of the most turbulent times in American history, when middle-class youth felt more passionate about ideas than financial success. Philosophy was in vogue- poetry was everywhere. Women were just finding their voices.THE METAPHOR MAKER ultimately portrays the power of empathy, hope, and generosity of spirit in a pluralistic, rapidly changing world.
