John Roberts has the risky habit of infidelity, but it isn’t adult John Roberts running his life, it’s John the indignant and angry teenager. At 17, his secret girlfriend becomes pregnant, and both fathers put an end to the relationship. John’s father sends him away to live with his Aunt Idell, the family matriarch, birthing in John an anger and resentment he carries into adulthood.
Twenty years later, a run-in with his first love and his father’s stroke, causes John to believe that redemption is finally at hand. Instead, John’s luck begins to run out as he discovers how everyone has moved on, except him. John finds himself facing death, divorce, a dwindling business, and no idea how to correct the mess he has made.
Family histories, both proud and tragic, play out in the background as John tries to learn the hard act of forgiveness.
A Note From the Publisher
Average rating from 4 members
I'm so glad I was able to read this book. I don't think I've read any historical fiction from the man's point of view but it was so interesting and his life was so complex.
It's not often you read stories from a man's perspective, but this was a very enjoyable book. A man has to come to terms to his dying father, and He's having a difficult time dealing with it. His father kicked him out when an incident happened at the age of 17. John returns home to help his mother, he runs into his old girlfriend and has to deal with all types of emotions.
This was a differently type of book, but It was very enjoyable. The author showed a lot of emotions and It was a fascinating story, and I was pleasantly surprised, especially by the ending of the story.
