The ""New York Times"" and ""USA Today"" bestselling author James Michael Pratt brings you to a small, coastal Californian town and delivers a poignant and unforgettable novel woven between the Vietnam War and the present day....Jack Santos never had a father -- or so he believed. All his life, he was told his father was killed in the Vietnam War. Jack was raised by his mother alone, and all his life he was searching for something he couldn't name. A twist of fate changes everything he thought he knew, however. He discovers his father isn't dead after all and that for the past decade he has been suspended between life and death; between dreaming and waking. Jack is hungry for everything he can find out about this father, Levi Harper. And the only link he has to the past is through Levi's journals. It is through these journals that Jack discovers who his father really is: from a small boy in Paradise Bay, California, to an eager young man going off to Vietnam, to a young husband who desperately wants a future for his wife, Levi Harper reveals his loves, dreams, hopes...
New York Times bestseller James Michael Pratt (Ticket Home) returns with a painfully corny tale about a son in search of a connection to a father he never knew in Paradise Bay. Levi Harper, injured in Vietnam, remained in a coma for 30 years and awoke long enough to launch a successful musical career and revive an affair with the love of his life, Janna. When she fell ill, the stress was too much for Levi and he relapsed. Now his son, Jack Santos, seeks to learn about the man (and himself) through Levi's journals. The unbridled sentimentality, wooden dialogue and hokey plot will be hard for even Pratt's fans to endure. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
