Two dates burn fiercely in the memory of millions of Americans: November 22, 1963, and September 11, 2001. These two tragedies bracket Unafraid, a story grounded in a simple question: What if the fatal bullet fired on that sunny Dallas afternoon had veered three inches off target? Unafraid lays out a compelling answer, rich with the public adventures and private dramas of twentieth-century icons—from J. Edgar Hoover to the Beatles—played out on a transformed world stage. At the center of this parallel history is a leader who blows the sides out of conventional politics with the simple belief that the primary reason idealistic goals are “impossible” to achieve is that we have needlessly decided that they are. With a tiny imaginary spin of history’s wheel, Unafraid opens the gates to an America of realistic hope and possibility.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“What an exciting, clever, imaginative book! And more, what an insightful, important one. This is the Great Read you’ve been looking for.” Neale Donald Walsch, author of the bestselling Conversations with God series
“Unafraid is a different kind of novel. While its story captivated me, its exploration of the possible was lifting my hopes for America and the world. This is a fine and important book.” Mark Gerzon, author of Leading through Conflict
“Jeffrey Golden’s Unafraid is just that. He takes us back to ground zero for our generation and starts the story over again—in a way that helps us better understand the mistakes we have made since November 1963 and what we could do now to make America work better…JFK would have smiled if he could see this book in readers’ hands.” David Ignatius, novelist and nationally syndicated Washington Post columnist
“Unafraid is an intriguing and highly believable story about Camelot as it might have been…and the America that is still possible.” Steve Bhaerman aka Swami Beyondananda, author of Swami for Precedent
“If Kennedy had lived? Jeff Golden uses this fascinating literary vehicle to offer a rounded and imaginatively revisited picture of President John Kennedy…Kudos to Golden for this compelling blend of fact and fiction.” John Steiner, Board Chair, Transpartisan Center
“Jeff Golden is a gifted and insightful writer. Highly recommended.” David Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community
