    "Brings a Tear and a Smile"

    The autobiography of Patrick Henry and his dad is one of the best I have purchased from Audible. I had seen Patrick Henry and his dad featured on ESPN a few years ago. Some of the questions the book answered for me: How did Patrick Henry get into the Marching Band? How does he read music? How does his family make every day activities work? What is his dad's day like? What is Patrick Henry’s major? (It’s not music.) To know that as a family, they have come together and created such wonderful opportunities from adversities that most of us feel couldn’t be overcome. I rewound and listened to many passages a second time already. It’s so good that I plan to give copies as gifts for teachers and friends. No matter what you walk in life, you’ll relate to this story.

    This autobiography is told from both Patrick Henry's and his dad's perspective, so there are two narrators. Good narration from both. You will enjoy the story and as you learn more about this family, you will reflect on your own life and vow to live your own life more positively.
