“I stood on the bridge just before midnight, the wind from the ocean arriving in violent blasts, as if saying under its breath, ‘Jump, motherf***er, jump.’ This was the last of a string of attempted departures, most orchestrated in my tired mind. Always a bitter reminder of all that had been lost and destroyed by my foolishness.”
This is a story of Matt Thomson, who is going through an emotional struggle after a bad mistake costs him his marriage, his kids, his job, his money, and his home. As I read through the beginning of the book, my heart broke for Matt because he felt so alone and didn’t know what else he could do.
Of course, I don’t want to give away too much. However, I will say that Matt’s wife is furious with him and his father-in-law is, pretty much, trying to turn the kids against Matt.
Matt’s life changes, though, when he meets a man, named Joey Murphy, who becomes his teacher and mentor. Joey leads Matt on a ten-day quest to help him discover his own pros and cons and to help him get back on his feet again.
This is a recommended read for all. The story had many emotional moments and, of course, there was some humor and quirkiness to it. The book can be found here.
