Julianna’s Irish boyfriend, Bill grew up in the exclusive Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn,a world away from the hard-scrabble Italian neighborhood he now finds himself about to visit with Julianna.
His father had been a career Naval officer before starting his civilian career, so Bill came from a professional class family, much different than Julianna’s more working class roots.
As a boy, he even played summer sports with Bobby Kennedy on Cape Cod when they were both children. Rather than fighting in World War II, he took part in the Korean Conflict, making him a different generation than the men in Julianna’s world.
He’s currently studying law, planning to follow in his father’s footsteps, but life may have other plans for him.
