I’m also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It’s hosted by Rose City Reader

I just started reading this one.  The excerpts are from the E-ARC.

First Chapter
How in the hell did I ever end up here?  Oliver wondered for the umpteenth time.  Recently, it had become his pathetic mantra.

From 56% on my Kindle…
After three of the longest days in his life – and more than a dozen nervous conversations with Marissa – Jonah’s cell phone range.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Three generations of dads, playing traditional roles in each other’s lives, arrive simultaneously at significant crossroads. The decisions they make and the actions they take will directly – and eternally – affect each other. After a life of hard work and raising children, Robert is enjoying his well-deserved retirement when he discovers that he has an illness he might not be able to beat. At 19, Jonah is sprinting across the threshold of adulthood when he learns, stunningly, that he’s going to become a father. And Oliver – Robert’s son and Jonah’s dad – has entered middle age and is paying its demanding price. While reconciling the time and effort it has taken him to reach an unfulfilling career and an even less satisfying marriage, he realizes that it’s imperative that he keep it all together for the two men who mean everything to him. When different perspectives lead to misunderstandings that remain unspoken – sometimes for years – it takes great strength and even more love to travel beyond the resentment. Dad: A Novel chronicles the sacred legacy of fatherhood.
