Anyone who has ever been responsible for a teen will appreciate the scenario in this novella. A missionary father who has been forced to return from the field in Kenya because of his errant daughter, makes an attempt to reconnect with her through their mutual enjoyment of fly fishing. It's difficult not to admire the father's patience and tenacity in the face of his daughter's disrespect. The comparison between his thoughts about what he wants to say to his daughter and what he actually does say adds a richness to his character. A smoothly depicted account, it was difficult to put down due to my curiosity as to whether the relationship would be restored. A well told story of sacrificial love, would recommend to readers in relationship with teens or to anyone who has felt unloved.

I was brought right in to the action and drama of the story. This introduction is clear, brief, and to the point. It's important for the reader to know what he or she is about to read, and not be disappointed if it changes direction. Doesn't look like your book will disappoint the reader. My curiosity about how the daughter is redeemed by the father's tears sounds exciting and uplifting.
