Mac Anderson holds life in the palm of his hand. He has a beautiful wife, three loving children, a comfortable home, and a successful career. Everything is perfect―or so it seems. Tragically, Mac is destined to learn that any sense of security can quickly prove false. Because an invisible enemy called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has invaded Mac's fragile mind and it is about to drop him to his knees. He does all he can to conceal his inner chaos but to no avail. Left to contend with ignorance, an insensitive justice system, and the struggles of an invisible disease, he loses everything―most importantly his family.
One shoebox might store an old pair of sneakers. Two shoeboxes might contain a lifetime of photographs. But in Three Shoeboxes, a father's undying love may be just enough to make things right again.
One of the things I try not to do when reading Steven Manchester's books is read the summary. This is so I can read without any clear idea what his books are about. Now, I know I already put the summary here for you to read but this is only the tip of the iceberg.
The author dug deep with this one and like many of the other books I have read, it almost seems like a personal journal but, that is the beauty of Steven Manchester's writing. PTSD is discussed in depth in the book and what it takes to overcome such a disorder. Steven Manchester once again brilliantly writes about a subject that is not only hard to digest for some but is very real in this day and time.
The main characters had everything, the life that every man or woman would ever want it seems. One magical night after a 15th wedding anniversary turns into a tragic tailspin. So much distrust, miscommunication, and mind-altering chaos turn this once loving family into a complete nightmare. His only saving grace is the love of his children.
Will they manage to ride the waves to healing? Will love conquer all through the gifts of shoeboxes? Ah, that my friends is why you have to read this excellent book!
I cannot begin to say enough here but this, pick up the book, read it, and breathe it in as only you can when reading this authors book. This is certainly a winner!
