Over the years Nelson, irrevocably scarred from the Vietnam War, becomes scoutmaster of Camp Chippewa while Jonathan marries, divorces, and turns his father's business into a highly profitable company. And when something unthinkable happens at a camp get-together with Nelson as scoutmaster and Jonathan's teenage grandson and daughter-in-law as campers, the aftermath demonstrates the depths - and the limits - of Nelson's selflessness and bravery.
The Hearts of Men is a sweeping, panoramic novel about the slippery definitions of good and evil, family and fidelity, the challenges and rewards of lifelong friendships, the bounds of morality - and redemption.

I really hated this book and the narration....
so contrived, predicable, melodramatic and pseudo-moralistic.
the narrator was just downright irritating. The voicing he did for the lead character of the grown up Nelson sounded like the voice you might hear in a 1950-something "educational" film. It was almost comical.
I kept listening to it with same curiosity I might derive from watching a really bad movie, wondering if this could really get worse. It did! By the half way point, I speeded the narration up to 1.5 which is something i have never done before
