I STAY NEAR YOU
New York : Harper & Row, 1985.
think a novel that covers three generations would take a thousand pages.
M.E. Kerr focuses the three generation time span around incidents involving
an old family heirloom ring with the inscription "I stay near you!" In
three generations we cover love between a rich boy and a bright but poor
girl. The girl is seen again as the mother of a rock star in the 60's whose
fast- paced life takes precedence over bringing up his son. The son's homework
assignment, an oral tape to his father is the third generation's revelation
about the struggle to know who you are and how you fit in the opposite
life styles of the rich and of the ordinary.
