Is it any wonder where I came up with the sexual and moral codes I live my life with? Reading Heinlein's fiction when you're a late teen or twenty-something really shapes how you think. Rereading it all when I'm forty-something really tends to show me where a large part of my counter-culture thinking came from. Others may be very turned off by Heinlein's preaching tone, but I love this book.

I loved this book. It seemed to tell a lot about Heinlein's childhood. It had its usual "brilliant redheaded woman who thinks having babies is the most important thing ever" but it's interesting to read the historical aspect.

This is a book that has all the Robert Heinlien chraacters tied together in one big cross time universe. The majority of these chraacters favorite past time is.. Fornication. The first 3 chapters deal predominately with the coming of age of the Title character Maureen Johnson. The rest of the book deals with various lovers and trists, and the lessons learned and shared with each down through the ages as we see Maureen grow from a young girl to adulthood, to old age, and then young again. The story is told as flash back as she recalls her life while awaiting execution for a crime she had no part in. Hienlien at his best, and his sleaziest.
