Publisher's Summary

Three best-selling authors join talents in a multidimensional novel that illustrates the importance of love, family, and forgiveness.

Three daughters, connected only through their relationship to Amos, a now elderly ex-musician struggling with Alzheimer's disease, find their lives intertwining as a car accident reunites them at Amos' bedside - bringing some long-buried issues to light.

Cass has little self-worth after Amos left her as a child. It is only through her cake-decorating business and encouragement from her best friend that she begins to reconstruct her life, eventually realizing she has enough room in her heart to forgive him.

Love-starved Toya doesn't want to emulate others' failed relationships. As she begins to strengthen her morals and stops seducing married men - she is surprised to discover that she shares some similarities with Amos.

Tomiko is a beautiful but lonely woman. Despite having a successful career in writing, she attempts to keep aspects of herself and her past buried as a coping mechanism. However, new love reawakens her faith in both herself and men.

As Cass, Toya, and Tomiko reconcile their feelings of abandonment, Amos reflects on his life and the decisions he made. And by revisiting their painful pasts, they all find ways to reconnect with each other and live with compassion.

    "Soulful"

    Finding Amos was a delightful tale of the cost of pursuing ones passions. It made me laugh and cry, while feeling all its soulful content.

    "Love these Authors"

    Finding Amos has a very honest view of the main character. Even though he's selfish, these authors make u love him the way everyone else does(even when they don't want to).

    "What happened????"

    These are some of my favorite authors individually.....but as a trio they failed miserably! I trudged through this book hoping it would get better but it was bad. None of the characters were likeable....(Cass was okay) and the book was was somewhat a negative portrayal of many of the stereotypes in the African American community/family life.
    Finally, the narrator....OMG! I'm sorry...he was bad as a female characters and even worse as a singer!
    A wasted credit.

    "Relationships !"

    This Trio should do another book together. They did a wonderful job of shedding light on the importance of the father daughter relationship. And, what happens if there is no investment in this relationship.

    "Could have listened to more; much room for sequel."

    Realistic. True to life. Envisioned my own father--this is his life (was) he' s dead now. The only difference is I never got the chance to meet my sibs; could be walking past them every day.

    "Touching story"

    This story touched something deep within me. I guess because it reminded me of own biological father. I love how it showed a truth in Amos that some absent fathers probably feel. Sad but true.

    "Before You Go"

    J.D., Reshonda, and Bernice know doubt wrote someone's biography. Finding Amos gave you such an in debt view of each characters experiences and how one effected the other. You get to see/feel how you can be robbed of something and not even know it until later on down the road when it causes things to happen. Kevin Free truly has you feel Tomiko's, Cass', Toya's and Amos' pain and their feelings after facing their trouble in his maturation.

    Story
    "I love these artists, what happened?"

    When I saw all three team up for a novel, I just knew it was an automatic classic. I dislike when authors introduce an issue but do not address it in the novel. I thought from the novel's opening Amos gave daddy issues because he had daddy issues.
