I loved this book! Not only does Parsons have a British sensibility, but he also has a no-nonsense sensibility that one can only conclude is the result of his years of covering the punk scene as a music journalist. This book allows women a glance into the male mindset, helping us understand it more. I also love how this book doesn't make the protagonist look like some hero for taking care of his child full time - something that most women do and society takes for granted.

A friend passed this along and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. Gives a great look into marriage, family, parenting love and loss but from a father's perspective. A great story and a quick enjoyable read. *Adult language

This was a sweet story of how a man discovers what it means to be a true father. A little slow paced, at times, but worth the time to read it.
