The Infinite Plan by Isabel Allende

Isabel Allende’s powerful tale
of one boy’s escape from the slums of Los Angeles. This magnificent novel
tells the story of Gregory Reeves, the son of Charles, an itinerant preacher.
As a boy, Gregory accepts the endless journeying and poverty which is his
family’s lot, never questioning the validity of his father’s homespun
philosophy of life — the Infinite Plan. But, as manhood approaches, Gregory
finds himself increasingly possessed by a yearning to escape. Hankering after
worldly wealth, he longs to break away from the barrio, the teeming Hispanic
ghetto of downtown Los Angeles where his family has finally settled.
Gregory’s quest, so different from his father’s, takes him first to the
killing fields of Vietnam, and thence to law school at Berkeley from where he
pitches headlong into a hedonistic pursuit of the American Dream!
