    Roy Page is no extraordinary father He is a father of two And he is divorced Not something uncommon in our society where over half of all marriages end in break up He is also the owner of an established marketing firm with multiple locales And it is not easy to run a successful business with the disadvantage of being a single parent Yet Page was determined to be a good father while keeping a close watch over his business It was then he decided to write an old fashioned letter to his son Evan pouring his heart and thoughts onto each page which became the kind of letter every child needs to receive and read The letter to forms the opening chapter of A Letter to Evan An Average Dad’s Journey of Discovery and Discernment Through Divorce published by Lucid Books July 2013 Full of wisdom that can only be taught by life’s experiences and struggles this letter turned book is a message of love and an affirmation of lifeIn 2009 his marriage and business both of which he cultivated so painstakingly were crumbling He stood helplessly as he watched his own father wasted away from the ravages of Alzheimer’s By 2011 he was left with nothing but the broken pieces He was struggling with his own anger and bitterness and his new role as a single parent and his relationship with his childrenRoy however discovered that living loving and forgiving is a matter of one’s own choice It is up to us to make a decision to choose to be optimistic and hopeful or to dwell on the destructive and undesirable elements of life He chooses to focus on his son by writing him a letter and not his own difficult circumstance helped Roy to move forward in his life with a new direction and healing Though he is not a counselor or advisor his goal is to be an encouragement to other single parents in their relationship with their children family and friends to give them hopeCo authored by Sarah Horton A Letter to Evan An Average Dad’s Journey of Discovery and Discernment Through Divorce is a epistle of love insight discernment and inspiration Progressing from a simple letter of a broken father the book is a poignant reminder that the seeds of blessing are present in every challenge and that while we are given all we need to triumph whether we do or not is always a choice we must make

    A father shares life’s lessons with his sonRoy Page is not a professional writer and if the reader expects a major work of literary stature about fatherhood then this is not the book to read But Roy Page is a human being who has weathered his share of tragedies – the loss of a successful business position in the recession that followed 911 the loss of his father to Alzheimer’s disease the crumbling and dissolution of a twenty year marriage and the disabling injury of his athletically gifted son Evan who faced the decision regarding surgical repair of a critically important anatomical tear if he were ever to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional baseball player In that moment of mind searching after Evan’s choice to have the surgery he composes a letter to his son and letter has become the matrix for explaining life’s processes chapter by chapter based on the thoughts shared in that letterA brief passage form his letter helps to explain the tenderness and reality testing of this letter ’Life and tie are fleeting A very wise person told me recently that too often we live in the past and spend too much time thinking about the future but life happens in the here and now today So relish in this experience Live it and experience it day by day and in this day And you will be a better person for it’ From that springboard Roy Page marches through his life experiences sharing completely how he has survived and how his love for this son and daughter have been and will continue to be the source of his ability to thrive these shared moments also reaffirm his position as a father has benefited from the trials he has survivedYes the letter and the follow up are uplifting and serve as a map of sorts on how to completely relate in a meaningful way to our children If the book is a bit too heavily dependent on Page’s repeatedly used heavy Christian motivational themes and references and if the inclusion of many photographs of Page and his children’s sports events and his parents’ history making this seem like a family scrapbook rather than simply a thoughtful memoir and inspiration text the honesty with which the book is imparted makes up for that

    I received this book for free through Goodreads After reading the description I was excited and hopeful thinking it would be a great book and an enjoyable read I certainly liked reading it but it just didn't uite live up to my expectationsThe content of the book what Page wanted to communicate to his son was insightful and inspiring; in fact this book has jumpstarted my practice of highlighting really powerful and beautiful ideas to return to later While the idea behind the book is wonderful the actual book itself is lacking I felt that the chapters which are based on sections of the letter the author wrote to his son which is produced in its entirety at the very beginning of the book were empty They blandly repeated ideas that were already well expressed in the actual letter and didn't seem to extend beyond those ideas There is great potential in this book but it did not live up to themIn my opinion while the book is about the author's relationship to his son Evan his own relationship with his father and his journey through his divorce and his remarkable life this book was not sufficiently developed to carry all three This juggling made the book seem disjointed and unfinished and left me wanting out of all three aspectsI would be interested in reading another book of Page's should he decide to write another book And though I know it seems like my review is mostly negative it is because I think that for all its faults the book is actually a good read and would like to see this author improve

  7. Randy Randy says:

    I wasn't sure what I was getting when I started this book It's not my usual fare I was uite surprised at this account of one father dealing with several issues the sort of thing that affects a great many men in the worldHis father suffering from Alzheimer's a storybook marriage crumbling his business slowing in today's economy and his son's promising atletic career temporarily derailed by a shoulder injury that would need surgery and rehabilitationThe prologue is a letter Roy Page writes his son and the rest of the book breaks it down with some lessons that Roy Page learns about himself his faith and where he might have gone wrong with his family and childrenthere's practical advice revelations about himself a nice primer of sorts that most any father could use to direct himself toward a better understanding of both himself his wife and childrenuite liked this one

    Roy Page writes an extended letter to his son Evan as a method to stay connected to his son when he is physically not living in the home he built for his family due to divorce In A Letter to Evan An Average Dad's Journey of Discovery Discernment Through Divorce Roy reveals his deep faith in God his faith in his sixteen year old son that he is becoming a man and shows his respect for the mother of his children as he feels he is lost part of being a good father because he is not there for his son It is a heartfelt letter of love and devotion of a father seeking to keep his child close but respect the child's need to make his own decisions and become a man he is proud of and supports I send my thanks to the author Roy Page for a copy of A Letter to Evan An Average Dad's Journey of Discovery Discernment Through Divorce

    This could be called a father's coming of age story Life was going well for Roy and then he lost his father to Alzheimer's his marriage of twenty years fell apart and his business took an economic downturn When his son Evan needed shoulder surgery Roy took the time to be with his son and think about his own life He wrote a long letter and expands on that in this book Roy is very open and honest about his life and his mistakes Two things about the book make it less than perfect This book is about Roy's growth process than it is an encouragement to Evan Also Roy had a personal counselor and an executive coach help him in the healing process something Roy admits most people will not be able to have to help them healYou can see my full review at

    I haven't been through a divorce nor am I father but my son is married to a woman who was in a previous relationship and they share custody of her son which is why I had hoped to win this book As Mr Page is far away so too is y grandson and his dad I'd hoped that my son and I could gain a better understanding of what my grandson's father must go through The book did not disappoint Roy Page's story was heartfelt and as he talks about the aloneness he felt throughout the process I felt I could encourage a connection between my son and the father of his son My son is now reading the book and I hope he takes to heart what Mr Page writes
