Following the death of his beloved wife, John McCarthy – Grandpa John – calls his family back home. It is time for them to face the memories they have made, both warm and cold. Only then can they move beyond them and into the future.
A rich portrait of a family at a crossroad, THE ROCKIN’ CHAIR is Steven Manchester’s most heartfelt and emotionally engaging novel to date. If family matters to you, it is a story you must read.
Losing a loved one is never easy, especially one’s spouse. It takes a very strong and special type of person to endure something so tragic and still have the will to try to mend broken relationships in the process. This character and book were very well-written and, this was the best story I have read in a long time. This was the second book I have read by this author, and he has a way of telling a story that grabs your attention right away. This is definitely one of those books that will stay with you for a lifetime, and an underlying message that family will always be there for you through good times and bad.
I give this book five stars and would recommend to everyone I know.
