Finding My Father: The Lifelong Quest by an Iwo Jima Marine's Son to Know the Man Who Was His Father
This book tells the story of my lifelong search for the man who was my father. Growing up in Allentown, Pennsylvania, in the 1950s, a small boy in a large house, I knew little of my father, for little was told to me. Not a remote and intimidating figure, as so many fathers were in that time, he was simply a mystery for which I had no solution. And the all-pervading silence in that house of my grandparents kept the mystery alive far into my adult life.

I was adopted and just found out that Charles Robert Cosgrove is my biological father. I have just received a copy of the book and am appreciative of the details the author (my cousin) has provided about my biological father. Paul Davis
I am very interested because Charles Robert Cosgrove is my paternal grandfather I would love to find more books about him
