This is a great story, told in the voice of a man whose relationship with his father was broken when he was just a boy. He spent his summers with him until suddenly, his father sent him away and the boy never got over it. Until. . . . his own relationship with his wife faltered, his errant father tried to touch base with him and he was forced to uncover decades-old burdens they both bore. The story is very worthwhile. The narration is at times stiff and pedantic which detracts a bit. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.
