In his final days, Jacob pens a letter to his son, Isaac. Said letter takes the reader on a historical journey, which begins in a rural town in Arkansas, with his great-grandparents, being raised by his grandparents, life as a married man and lastly …ostracizing his gay son. What I received from this letter was a cry for forgiveness, as Jacob chronicles his transformation in life. I love how the author incorporated 3 of my favorite books as symbolisms…GENIUS! Witnessing the roles of father and son was definitely surreal.
My favorite character is Jacob’s grandmother. She appeared weak, but in essence, she was very strong and reminded me of both of my grandmothers. Ironically, my least favorite character was her husband, Jacob’s grandfather. He was so cold-hearted and callous, to everyone around him…just like my grandfather!
Reading this novel made me stop and thank God, not only for my children, but the relationship that we have. Parents, we may not agree with the decisions that or children make, but the doors of communication should always be open, so they feel comfortable enough to talk with us.
