The book

R.k.'s style of writing is one the most astounding ones i have ever seen.With just one book, I own,he has impressed me deep within.The story line is very simple,plain yet the emotional punch that comes,is so strong that it hits u well. This is s story of a English teacher,the impact his married life and fatherhood has and his transition from bachelorhood to these new responsibilities.It also tracks his spiritual side.

A good book,a must read.

Never lend books, for no one ever returns them; the only books I have in my library are books that other folks have lent me. " ~Anatole France
