Overview

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Against the electrifying backdrop of the 1960s, Danielle Steel unveils the gripping chronicle of a young woman discovering a passion for justice and of the unsung heroes she encounters on her quest to fight the good fight.

The daughter and granddaughter of prominent Manhattan lawyers, Meredith McKenzie is destined for the best of everything: top schools, elite social circles, the perfect marriage. Spending her childhood in Germany as her father prosecutes Nazi war criminals at the Nuremberg trials, Meredith soaks up the conflict between good and evil as it plays out in real time. When her family returns to the United States, she begins blazing her own trail, swimming against the tides, spurred on by her freethinking liberal grandfather, determined to become a lawyer despite her traditional, conservative father’s objections. She rebels against her parents’ expectations for her debutante ball and other conventions. She forges a lifelong friendship with a young German Jewish woman whose family died in the concentration camps. And while her grandfather rises to the Supreme Court, Meredith enlists in the most pressing causes of her time, fighting for civil rights and an end to the Vietnam War.

From the bright morning of JFK’s inauguration, through the tumultuous years that follow as America hurtles toward the twin assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy, Meredith joins the vanguard of a new generation of women, breaking boundaries socially, politically, and professionally. But when the violence of the era strikes too close to home, her once tightly knit family must survive a devastating loss and rethink their own values and traditions in light of the times.

Encompassing the remarkable people Meredith meets, the historic events she witnesses, and the sacrifices she must make, this is the story of a woman changing her world as she herself is changed by it. Beautifully told, brimming with unforgettable moments and characters, The Good Fight is an inspiring, uplifting novel with resonance for our own time.

Have no opinion It won’t open on my reader

Ok, I'm not saying the book is bad or making a bad review. But something in the first paragraph of the 1st chapter caught my attention. It's says that "Her father had enlisted as an Officer immediately after Pearl Harbor". That's wrong, officers in the military get "commissioned", and "enlisted" is when you go to a "recruiter" and "enlist" in the military. If I'm wrong please correct me, but I know I am not. I am going to read it anyway

This book is a work of fiction I know but......if young women would read this book they would find they can be anything they want to be or do what they want to do with using some tenacity. I really enjoyed this book an thank heavens for Grandfather who inspired this young woman to think for herself and follow her dreams. Most of Danielle Steel's books are kind of written on the same principle but this one was a page turner for me. Read it in a day!

Hard to put down, as usual. I read it in two days. The HEA was very rushed. Would have liked more detail.

Although a goodbook was disappointed in the political inaccuracies in this book. Enough that I am seriously at war with myself about dropping Danielle Steel as an author read. That saddens me asi own mostkf her books and really enjoy her books. This may have pushed too far for me
