It's 1970. The Vietnam war, free speech and civil rights, is on everyone's minds. But Karin only wants to find just the right man.
In Her Own Backyard, a romance novel of 70,000 words, takes place in 1970 when the country is embroiled in the Vietnam War and protesters take to the streets of Berkeley, California.
In the midst of these protests and sit-ins on the Berkeley campus, Karin Atwood falls in love with a talented and worldly professor who has a secret that might destroy their love. Misunderstandings pull them apart and she falls into the arms of a handsome but sinister man who needs rather then loves her. Soon, she believes she has lost the love of both men to a mysterious young woman.
