The Fathers We Find
By Charles P. Ries
Published: May 26, 2012.
“Charles Ries' novel The Father's We Find reminds me of Frank McCourt's (Angela's Ashes, "Tis, Teacher Man) memoirs with their keen attention to character and strong voice. Ries' characters' voices are ring loud and clear, I can hear them calling, long after putting the book down." ----
