But what happens when the glue begins to fade?
Grampa John McCarthy and his son, Hank McCarthy have gone through all of these phases, answered all of these questions and their roads have taken different directions...preferably the farthest away from each other! They find out that even though they thought they were traveling in opposite directions...their destinations seem to have the same horizon. They realize that even thought their "glue" is fading, it is still much stronger than either ever recognized!
I have read and reviewed hundreds of novels in my life. Many of them have given me new perspective but NONE have ever "changed my life"...except this one. Steven Manchester's book, "The Rockin' Chair" not only changed my life, but I believe it changed the lives of my family for generations to come. This book soulfully examines that "hidden" family love we all have, but are afraid to share...especially between a father and a son.
"The Rockin' Chair" taught me not to be ashamed of expressing my love for anyone...man or woman. It taught me that love is not love unless it is GIVEN. If there were such a thing as "Father & Son Book Club's", this would be the ultimate pick. Men and women alike, I urge you to allow this book to touch your soul as well. I promise that you won't regret it!
