His is a pensive existence filled with much confusion and emptiness.As a little boy watching sandcastles crumble and then a young man befriending an outcast at boarding school, Richard comes of age eager to succeed and have others think well of him despite his awkward and unsettled nature. As a grown man, he struggles to create a happy marriage and raise his two daughters with honor. But it's not until he has a disturbing vision during his midlife and encounters a mysterious woman with great wisdom that Richard is able to make better sense of his life and what's to come.An adventurous spirit with a mundane life, Richard craves something to live for-and just might muster the courage to find it. Elegant, contemplative, and ultimately hopeful, "Open the Door, Richard" will speak to all people who struggle to bring more meaning, acceptance, and contentment to their lives.
