A sometimes hilarious three-generational clash, of values plays out in REJOICE, a novel about a conventional mother, an uncompromising hippie daughter, and a devil-may-care granddaughter raised in an idealistic commune. The mother finally details her struggle in a memoir which she pays her granddaughter to tout on a do-it-yourself book tour.
The granddaughter is less interested in the book than she is in her gypsy hippie encounters with the pony-tailed know-it-all who is pursuing her. Soon her casual attitude toward life is put to the test when she falls in love with the dutiful son of a straight-laced Mexican widow. Do we hear wedding bells or fire sirens in the distance?
