Summary
After Andy Crawford learns of his father's death, he returns home to Anamosa, Iowa and comes to understand the truths deep inside his childhood memories. He recollects the turbulent, life changing events from the summer of 1966, and how everything had seemed to turn sideways. While soldiers fought in the faraway jungles of Vietnam, at home, the nation was at a crossroads. As the Greatest Generation tightened its grip to maintain control of the values that rebuilt the country after World War II and the Great Depression, the next generation pushed the boundaries to establish their vision of a new America. Andy found himself in the middle of the struggle, surrounded and shaped by the love of his mother and his father, his uncle, but most of all, by Billy West. When Billy West comes home from the war in Vietnam he is a changed man. Yet nothing at home has changed. With the love of his life at his side, he not only wrestles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, he is also confronted by a dark and evil force in the name of Joe Matsell. Following an altercation with Billy, Joe is bent on revenge and will stop at nothing to settle a score. The two men struggle for what is right-- one committed to serving others and the other solely focused on preserving his own power. As the sum of their choices bear various fruits, the consequences of love and fear unfurl and alter the lives of a group of people who lived on a river called the Wapsipinicon. It is on this river where lives drifted with unpredictable currents, converged, and changed Andy forever. Dedicated to our military veterans, Wapsipinicon Summer is a story about coming home and healing, about courage and scars, about forgiveness and redemption, and about giving love a chance
