Long Beach Island features prominently in a new historical novel about the Cultural Revolution in America. Asleep in the Light - is a coming of age story about what life was like during the sixties and seventies. Patrick Callahan was a fourth generation immigrant who was born in the golden age we call Camelot. His parents and Church gave him a moral compass. Revolutionaries had long ago secured his freedom and the Greatest Generation had just poured out their blood and treasure to maintain it. Shortly after his birth the Christian society that had taken centuries to build was shattered. Why? What happened? Patrick vividly shares his experiences during the invasion no one saw coming, because parents, pastors, politicians and citizens alike were all Asleep in the Light.
