Thirty-seven-year-old John Morgan's personal life is already in disarray when he receives a phone call that his brother and niece are dead. His relationship with his father is nearly nonexistent, he barely speaks to his sister, and he has no real friends to lean on. As the tragic news slowly begins to sink in, John realizes he is floating aimlessly in the middle of an unpredictable sea of emotions with no one to rescue him.
    
    In this compelling tale that movingly illustrates the devastating effects of a dysfunctional family, John must learn to change what he can, accept what he cannot, and make the difficult decision to leave some things behind.

    Thank you!
yes I agree. households like this are not the best influence when raising children :(
My heart aches for him. He sought for validation from.his own family and they failed to provide him with that. It's really heartbreaking.
I don't like the father. Why did he even take the trouble of raising the other two?
I don't think that is weak. I think that is very normal. Also, I don't think people get over the loss completely. At least when the loss of someone who they really cared for.
This is rather sad. Parents need to treat children fairly. They don't realise this perhaps, but it scars them. This is not healthy.
This is so beautiful. I love how reading somehow points out to things that we never give much thought to.
