This book sounds really interesting. I probably would never have purposely chosen this book off the shelves for myself, but I am intrigued, especially with the relationships between the father and his sons, and with the son and the mother he never knew.

Everyone that has received their copy sounds fairly excited to have the "hardcopy" in hand.

I keep checking out the front door, here in Manassas, Virginia, for my copy to arrive . . . 

I have the sound of the the delivery truck in my head so I know it will be any minute. 

Reading . . .is LIVING in true color

I received my book today and I am on chapter 4, and I can't wait to start the discussion on this book. So far this book as perked my interest, and now I must slow down my reading so I can be with the group when we start the discussion on September 6. Paul you did it again, and I thank you for this very interesting book.

Hi Katiegirl, that's the way it is, once you get the book you can't wait to start reading it.

Re: About The Wake of Forgiveness" and Bruce Machart

I want to start reading it too but I'm afraid I will want to keep going, so I'm going to wait and try to keep on schedule.  But it sure looks tempting!  :smileyhappy:
