It will make you appreciate all you have done and the message you are sending to those close to you." Robert L. Dilenschneider, Chairman, The Dilenschneider Group "Charles Rath has captured the flavor of an era with his first novel. Drawing from his own life experience, he shares with the reader the flavor of his own "coming of age", a struggle with which many readers will identify. Charles motivates us to relive our own triumphs and disappointments, a worthy exercise." Robert E. Byrnes, musician, psychologist, restaurateur. "There's a depth and tenderness in this novel I look for in everything I read. The humor in Rath's voice belies the sadness and the loneliness of his characters. What at first might appear as a lighthearted romp is in fact a masterful exploration of estrangement, small-town isolation and human nature." Katherine Taylor, author of RULES FOR SAYING GOODBYE "In , Charlie Rath writes about family, friendship and dreams - both realized and shattered - with a wit, grace, and humanity rare in today's fiction. Readers will recognize in Rath's characters their own family, friends, nemeses, and neighbors, and be glad to go on this journey with them." Eric Rickstad - author of REAP and THE SILENT GIRLS
