Publisher's Summary

The co-host of ESPN's Mike and Mike follows up his New York Times bestseller All You Could Ask For with this poignant story of one man's search for the secret to understanding his father, his marriage, and himself.

Jonathan Sweetwater has been blessed with money, a fulfilling career, great kids, and Claire, his smart, gorgeous, sophisticated wife. But there is one thing Jonathan never had: a relationship with his father.

Percival Sweetwater III has been absent from his son's life since Jonathan was nine years old. A five-term U.S. senator, Percy was beloved by presidents, his constituents, and women alike, especially the five women who married him after he and Jonathan's mother divorced.

Jonathan hasn't thought about Percy or the hole he left in his life for years. But then he discovers evidence that everything in his marriage may not be as perfect as he thought.

On a quest for understanding - about himself, about manhood, about marriage - Jonathan decides to track down his father's five ex-wives. His journey will take him from cosmopolitan cities to the mile-high mountains to a tropical island... and ultimately back to confront the one thing Jonathan has that his father never did: home.

    Story
    "Not the Novel It Might Have Been"

    I downloaded this audiobook immediately upon seeing Mike Greenberg being interviewed (primarily by Gayle King, who claimed to have loved the book) on "CBS This Morning." I was intrigued by the notion of a man who seeks to discover the father he hardly knew through the stories his father's six wives are willing to share with him. This is a nice story peopled, in general, with nice characters; in the hands of a more talented/sophisticated writer, it could have been a very good novel, indeed. As is, it's a pleasant enough listen with a few insights and even more basketball thrown in.

    Any additional comments?

    This book was awesome! I really enjoyed it! It was fun to be able to follow the journey that Jonathan went on to not only sort out his personal life but to also find out about who is father was and how that has formed him as a man, husband and father! I wa fully engaged and entertained. There was enough going on that kept us all turning pages. There is a bit of everything! 4.5 stars

    Story
    "I loved it until the end"
    Would you consider the audio edition of My Father's Wives to be better than the print version?

    Only listened, but I fell in love with the narrator!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Claire, the wife


    What does Andy Paris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's wonderful. No one could have done better


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the book but found the ending a big letdown. He had me so involved, waiting to find out....(don't want to spoil the end), but then it just felt like he got tired of thinking and just wanted to end the story. He could have done so much more with the plot that was setup.
