"Make no mistake about it, this unsung book is a giant accomplishment. Sage brings to life a huge multiracial cast of characters who are skillfully individualized. Also, the Zeitgeist of the time is fully captured. The author presents us with lives in America that are rarely seen in serious fiction, and these lives are portrayed in an evenhanded, non-judgmental, non-sensational manner. I highly recommend this book to readers in search of a book that extols and makes believable the healing force of being a member of an outlaw biker club." -EXCERPT David Willson, Vietnam Veterans of America
"Red, White & Blues is an epic undertaking. It takes the reader into two divergent cultures, that of the 1960s hippie in San Francisco and that of the Vietnam war veteran. The juxtaposition of these two stories is beautifully researched and written in a complex and intriguing manner. It's a thought-provoking tale of drugs, free sex, traditions and choices that will keep readers thinking long after the back cover is closed." -EXCERPT Karen Pirnot, Readers' Favorite

LV Sage's novel is dangerously full of characters... so many that you might risk losing track if not for her ability to create an instant intimacy. Her most lovable characters became my new best friends. The least savory of the bunch wormed their ways into my heart like crazy childhood friends whom you can't cut loose. With a knack for great storytelling and an enviable talent for character development, LV Sage has won a fan for life in me. Sequel please!
Neither of them discussed the WAR to my knowledge. This journey back in time was a bit confusing, all the time! Too many names, circumstances, etc. I wanted the core of all the lifestyles, not the trivial details, for me it dragged on quite a bit. My life was different, not exposed to the Hippie lifestyle, although acutely aware of it. Sage got to the down and dirty of it all in great detail, the biker life and communes, the trials and agonizing mental anguish that most people felt in those days. It's strange to read back and events hit you straight on that were just a distant memory, my parents era was much more romantic in the days of WWII. There were a lot of very important events that were touched on such as our music and political icons. Growing up in So. Cal, I felt as though I were driving up and down the coast! Loved that!
