There is one other passenger in the coach, Sam Cody, an American from Texas who is battered and a bit drunk. A few hours earlier, Sam tried to chase down a couple of purse snatching thieves and got a beating from them. But since there are only Sam and Lydia in the coach speeding across Dartmoor, they have to speak to each other, and this is where the book begins to shine. Judith Ivory can write some of the most wonderful dialogue I have ever read. As for Lydia, she is every inch the English Lady, but with a streak of fire and passion that she has kept fiercely tamped down until the coach has a wreck and Lydia and Sam are marooned on the Dartmoor.
Attention all aspiring writers: Read this section carefully if you want to see how a master writer handles conflict, attraction and sexual tension. This is as close to perfect as a romance could be — everything worked. The tension and attraction between Sam and Lydia built and built until they consumate their attraction in love scenes that are — well, they are simply superb — as luscious and sensual as anyone could want, and well-written to boot. When Sam and Lydia are rescued, the pace slackens and the story goes off in several directions. A shrink later tells him "[the war babies] were the most creative and rebellious of any group she has ever dealt with.
There is a lot of sex in the book. Even the most libidinous reader might blush, but there is no lurid intention. Hayward is telling it just like it is.

Shamefully, he did not have the age-old benefit of a thoughtful editor. To his great credit, this reviewer was emotionally moved, many times. Hayward writes with great humanity and introspection. When he falls in love, so do we. The book left me swimming in a melancholy over the passage of time, long road under the wheels and lost loves.

Each chapter is presented with a visual artwork married to that moment. These diamonds left this reader wanting more. The art is a visual chronicle of this man's growth. It is also an evolutionary map of contemporary art, specifically Southern Californian. I would like to think that this book is a pre-press preview to a much larger and colorful edition. Indiscretion , the title of the book, is a matter of delicate consideration. When William Shakespeare wrote in Henry IV, that the better part of valor is discretion, he was being funny. Hayward is plainspoken when he states, "Indiscretion is the better part of adventure and humor makes it bearable.
Humor is always there. Find it.
The Rosebud to James Hayward's life is revealed in the introduction, not in the final reel. At his mother's deathbed, he asks, "'If you had more time, what would you like to do?
