Publisher's Summary

Daniel Peterson's life was all planned out. His upcoming marriage would guarantee him the lifetime corner office in her father's firm, complete with the highest social standing, country club memberships...even golf lessons.

But then the phone rang. It seems the father he never knew has passed away, leaving him a tidy inheritance. To claim it, Dan is tasked with scattering his father's ashes, but under the most bizarre conditions and circumstances he could possibly imagine. This sends Dan on a wild, cross-country adventure of discovery - and self-discovery. As he comes to know his father, he is also forced to re-evaluate himself and all he holds dear. This is a heart-warming tale that redefines friends and family, and will leave you laughing with a tear in your eye.

    "Incredible Oscar worthy!"

    Truly hope they make this one a movie. Rich in characters that made me weep and laugh out loud. I wish I could give this book a reward as it sure rewarded me. Feel deeply in love with Bob and his deep depth of friendship and humanity. The journey he sends his son Dan on is incredibly beautiful to listen to. And that is in itself beautiful, the narrator is so good on this book you will not be disappointed. Again, incredible job! I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest opinion. I don't think anyone could be disappointed in this book it's really that good.

    "My Father's Ashes"


    My Father's Ashes: A Young Man's Journey Through His Father's Life
    : Bruce Jenvey




    A young man who never knew his father learns about him after a lawyer calls to tell him of his death. Dan's life had been planned out for him, first by his mother then by his fiancee and her father. When he travels to fulfill his fathers last request, he finds himself. The listener goes along on the journey and learns there is more to life than success.I hope to find more from this author.


    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Dave Cruse draws the listener into the story. It was very enjoyable!!

    "Learning from His Father"
    Would you consider the audio edition of My Father's Ashes to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print or Kindle version. However, the story is strong and Dave Cruse's performance is amazing!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Daniel. He is open to the adventure and discovery of his father's life.


    What about Dave Cruse’s performance did you like?

    Dave Cruse is exceptional on this recording. He possesses a sense of conversation that is realistic. Maybe the best of the many audio book voice talents that I've listened to! He has a varied range of voices for characters. A great voice that keeps the story moving. He adds so much to this work!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did want to, but also wanted to savor it bit by bit.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the best listens I've had for its entertainment aspects.

    Thank you for the opportunity to review it!
