Summary

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 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 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 times.

Progressive, eye opening and a great story

If, as you listen to this story you think about how the main character bucks the trend for how young girl's are expected to behave during the time it's set, it's a progressive story line. It will have you Willing her on to be successful and show society women do not have to be shackled to their husbands as individuals in capable of thinking for themselves. For those that think it's a book about feminism, its not: It's about women showing they can be successful in a man's world, or what many believe should be a man's world. Great historical aspect to the story as well. One of my favourites.

Great until the end

I love Danielle Steel. This story was performed very well. The story was wonderful, but the ending was too abrupt. I enjoyed it until it was just over.

Really Danielle Steele???

This just doesn’t seem to be her style of writing & I wonder if someone else wrote it for her. Was very hard to get through. I would not recommend it at all!!
