1 Review
Not many books have been written to help the grieving son or daughter deal with the new reality of a deceased father. Smith has combined personal stories from Frederick Buechner, Norman Vincent Peale, Corrie ten Boom, James Dobson, and many other well- known people to help others through their grieving process.

I give this book to people who are grieving their father's death...because it helped me so incredibly much. Harold Ivan Smith is a treasure of the church.
