–A Father Remembers —
All families possess shared anecdotes. These little tales are about the wonderful years of the authorâs role as a father. For as every dad finds out, the kids are âtoo soon gone.â? From childhood to young adult, the stories trace the growth of one manâs family, with occasional ruminations about the uncertainties and follies and foibles of fatherhood. Most of the tales are funnyâsome are sad. A few are both.
They all celebrate the fact that fatherhood is a unique and wonderful experience. Dads will find in the stories a reminder to remember. And hopefully they may hear a prompting to hold their own family tales close to the heart in the telling and retelling with those who share their lives. Buy from Amazon.com for $16.95.
