The right book, the right time
7 August 2018
I don’t usually read books like this. The staff book club at the school where I am Head decided that this would be our summer reading. Uncertain, I went to Amazon & committed. As a result past week has been incredible, and when I finished it this morning I was sad that my time with James and Danny had come to an end. But what an ending.
It is the story of two men who find redemption and second chances through a seemingly unlikely relationship. It is a wise and witty book that speaks truth to us about the importance of friendship, of communication and of embracing the difficult choices that will lead to greater happiness and fulfilment.
I enjoyed every page of this book. Mike Gayle has given us an opportunity to gain a perspective on the lives of people who have experienced profound, life changing events. And while we don’t all have to face these types of challenge, we all, in some way, have to fight our demons and either “give in or get up”.
