I only made it four pages in, before I stopped to write this “preview” of INTO MY FATHER’S WAKE by Eric Best. Buy the Book
A family friend urges him to do his dream now. “Getting older has a way of making you afraid to do things and the fear will come on you unexpectedly”.
Act now. Yesterday you were 15. Tomorrow your dream will be impossible. Do it now.
What will you be afraid to do? Hope beats regret any day.. and action beats simply hoping.
One reviewer begins… “Into My Father’s Wake” records the 5000-mile solo sail of journalist Eric Best as he struggles to come to terms with a recent divorce, solitude at sea and the impact of his powerful father in his life.”
