They met when they were both in diapers. Cory Whipple was the "boy next door" who became the love of Bibs Johnson's life. Cory proposed when they were 6 years old, Bibs accepted, and they never changed their minds. Then came The Sixties. Cory, raised by two maiden aunts to think independently, balked when his country demanded actions and attitudes of him that he could not give. Bibs supported his radical decision and that's when things got shaky. Bibs' father was part of The Greatest Generation-proud to do his Duty. Ed Johnson saw Cory in an entirely different light than Bibs did. A fault line formed between father and daughter-a fissure so deep, Bibs wondered if it could ever be bridged, even by a engineer like Cory who specializes in building bridges.
