Although very good, this book took me a while to read. Frank shares the story of his journey to finding true faith written as a letter to his daughter. It is detailed and personal. Frank analyzes his life from a psychological point of view from childhood to adulthood. He details the events and people that impacted his life and influenced the person he has become today.
Although Frank grew up in a pretty dysfunctional home life, he still speaks highly of his parents and brings to light their positive traits and reinforces their strengths. He talks in length about how those ideals have stuck with him, as well as, how the negative way his parents related to him as a child affects how he relates to people today. He shares his disappointment in the Catholic church and the questions that led him to desire to know truth. His journey to faith is a compelling and interesting one.
I found this book to be insightful and encouraging. I read it slowly, digesting what he wrote and taking into consideration things that happened in his life, comparing them to my own, lingering on how those events and people - good and bad influenced who he is today. I enjoyed the analogies and in depth psychology. I would recommend this book to anyhow who may have had a traumatic or tough childhood, who has struggled with their faith and the question of "why would God allow such and such?". It wasn't really an easy book to read. I just had to read a chapter or so at a time, digest the info, then move on to the next chapter. I felt like I was getting a very personal and up-close look at Frank and his family, both past and present.
I received this book from the author and the book club network in exchange for my honest opinion.
