About this title

Synopsis:

Father of the Man portrays a young boy, standing near the threshold of a remote window in time, his eyes trained on his father's heroic ascent toward an unforeseeable anonymity. This creative autobiography reveals a reluctant, prodigal father and his estranged New England son, who, after decades of separation, returns to offer comfort, reconciliation and redemption in a father's final hour. At the heroic moment of descent, both father and son find uncommon strength and enduring hope in the intimacy and joyous agony of restored love. Father of the Man belongs to every son and daughter yearning to rediscover and reaffirm their own humanity. "This is the book to own, to treasure, to read and re-read, if you (as I) have become convinced that literacy has become uncommon among today's writers...he (Peter) bestows to us the privilege of sharing his experience as he skillfully interweaves classic quotations into contemporary lifestyles." -Herschell Gordon Lewis
