There’s a lot of sadness in this book and it was hard for me to get in to at first, but I’m so glad I stuck it out and read the whole thing. Reading this brought back some sad memories of my dad who was also an alcoholic, but it also reminded me that God is and always will be helping me cope through my past too. I loved how Ian ended the book with talking about his own family. He, his wife, their two girls and their boy went swimming at the quarry, which had four different ledges to jump into the water from. Each ledge was higher than the one before; his daughters were both daring and bold like their mom, their son, more scarcely like his father-but he would jump if his dad was always there to catch him. The way Ian described their trips to the quarry and the fun they had…it was really touching. It made me so happy and brought tears to my eyes to read that Ian’s son is getting the love from a father that Ian never got.
This is a very touching book, once you get through the beginning. I am really glad that I read it.
I received this book through Booksneeze in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.
