The Best Choice in 2012, March 15, 2012 By Cat mom (LI NY) – This book is different from my usual Kindle choices…. It was absolutely outstanding. I found the African setting interesting. The father’s search for his son drove the exciting plot. The novel was worth many stars.*

I loved this book, March 12, 2012 By Jim Brumm – I can’t believe that this wonderful book is as inexpensive as it is. It is a great read of a father’s quest to find his son in Africa to deliver a letter from the boy’s dying mother. But it’s so much more than that. It is a saga of cultures clashing, of regret, redemption, and adventure, all told with great writing. There aren’t enough good books that are set in Africa. This is one of the best. I would have been happy to pay $10 for this book.

Captivating! March 5, 2012 By BookAddict (FL) – I was engrossed in this story from beginning to end. The plot is multi-layered, with mystery, suspense, drama and adventure. The characters are unique and have many dimensions. They made me care and I wanted to crawl inside the story with them. The dialogue is realistic. The ease of the descriptions immersed me in African countries and cultures. I did not simply read this story. I experienced it.

Review by: Cindy Rinaldi on July 29, 2011 : star starstar star star
In 1979, when American Matt Reiser lands in Africa to search for his son, he quickly finds himself beaten and robbed of everything from his passport to his shoes. Haunted by regrets, Matt is on a quest for redemption and the robbery triggers a chain of events that takes Matt on a dangerous journey across international boundaries without a valid passport. A dubious hotel concierge and his street-smart niece seem to want to help Matt, but their lives collide in a pivotal moment that sends Matt running from thugs and government officials through urban and rural Africa in a life-changing adventure. Surprising twists hurl strong characters through colorful sights, smells and sounds of a time gone by. “Facing the Son” delivers a great roller coaster ride that is a testament to a father’s love for his son and his son’s mother in a story that is compelling, heartwarming and bittersweet.

West Africa before cell phones…

Africa has always seemed a long way away to me, and a little intimidating for that reason. One sees news of the violence, corruption and dire poverty there. Facing the Son, which takes place in the late 1970s, does not gloss over these aspects of the continent, but the novel is also a heart-warming, positive story about an American father’s attempt to reconnect with a son who has chosen to distance himself from his family by moving there.  The pace is quick and the plot keeps turning as frequently as the back roads traveled. Liked it so much, I read it twice!

What a great book.  From the outset the reader is put in suspense with what has got to be any travelers worst nightmare – and then in a country as foreign as one can imagine.  This book has a lot to offer including understanding the challenging conditions in Africa, a traveler put completely outside his comfort zone, and a father’s struggle with his broken relationship with his son.  The story continues throughout to take new unexpected turns and one quickly gets to a point where you cannot put it down until completed.
