Realizing our parents had lives before we were born sometimes is a difficult concept for children. I believe this story aptly portrays how often we are so concerned with our own picture, our own little world, that we don't really see the big picture, and how it played a part in creating who we become.
Ronald Anthony's "The Forever Year" captured my attention from cover to cover, with an interesting story and well developed characters.
Family dynamics, sibling rivalry and selfishness contribute to a new and evolving relationship of an elderly father and his youngest son who is 50 years his junior. The Forever Year presents two tender love stories from different generations, one still developing and possibly headed for demise, and one an intense and vivid memory, which teaches a lesson of commitment and true love.
Bittersweet, and a pleasure to read.
A different author for me to try but thought the reviews I read were worth buying this book. I am now a big fan of R. Anthony. Very good well written story.
A touching book. Could not put it down!
I have not read this book yet, but if you want to swap I will make sure to put it aside to read.
