My Review

The Diary of a Broken father tells  of his life and how he hurt the person most valuable to him, his daughter.  Deciding he needed a change in his life after the fact of his daughter being taken from him by a sister in law. So he signs himself up for AA. This is his story and what he went through to get forgiveness from his only child his daughter. Easy road ? No way! Garrison will fight many demons down the road of recovery. Not only with demons but also with God.  I'm sure there are many people can relate to this story. Sad but it happens way to much.  Is it to late can Garrison beat the alcohol? Will he be able to change  and get forgiveness from his daughter? Great novella to read. Strong characters.
