"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. Encompassing the remarkable people the protagonist, 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 times"--
Spending her childhood in Germany as her father prosecutes Nazi war criminals at the Nuremberg trials, Meredith McKenzie soaks up the conflict between good and evil as it plays out in real time. Returning to the United States, determined to become a lawyer despite her father's objections, she forges a lifelong friendship with a young German Jewish woman whose family died in the concentration camps. While her grandfather rises to the Supreme Court, Meredith fights for civil rights and an end to the Vietnam War. When the violence of the era strikes too close to home, her family must survive a devastating loss and rethink their own values and traditions in light of the times. -- adapted from jacket.

I'm not a huge Danielle Steel fan. I must concede however, that she, (or her staff) does very good research. This book charts the life of Meredith McKenzie through the tumultuous 1940s, 50s and 60s.Meredith's grandfather is a liberal, way ahead of his times and proves to be Meredith's mentor encouraging her to live a full life and fight the good fight; that is fight for what she believes in and champion the causes of the underdogs. Sure enough Meredith opposes her conservative father and does exactly that. The book contains the usual Steel drama but since it is interspersed with History it makes for interesting reading.

I found this book interesting. Having lived through that time and remembering it vividly, I thought DS did a great job!
