Sometimes what you are desperately searching for is right under your nose. That's the lesson of this fascinating memoir from a character that has grown up in what seems the least dramatic place in the country: small town Iowa. Yet, even in a small farming town, life can bring harsh blows and many crazy turns. Follow the journey of one man from childhood trauma to drug addiction to settling down into a rewarding family life while gaining the respect of the man he always wanted to please but was never quite able to: his father. As you read his story, perhaps you'll realize that what you seek might be right beside you. Perhaps this book will even save you a lot of time from looking for peace and contentment in all the wrong places.
