"Sons in The Shadow" is well written and tells 2 tales - one of a difficult father/son relationship and one of how the business operates in the advertising world. I found the father's letter to his son full of excellent advice but lacking in affection - Roy Jr. makes up for his father's insensitive side and the poems are touching and heartfelt. As an avid dog lover I connected with his love for animals and understanding of the bond that exists between people and their pets.
Ahhh - to relive the joy and pain of your first true love. I cried and laughed with the author as she grows up and experiences the pain of an unjust world and the unimaginable loss of a child - she triumphs through it all and forges through with dignity and happiness.
