Then, in a dramatic turn of events, Charles experiences unprecedented success. He finds a wonderful wife, raises a family, excels in business to such a degree that he creates an empire that is noticed by the President of Kenya, and he becomes a pinnacle in the church movement. Charles is on top of the world.
And then his world changes.
In spite of his tremendous achievements, the plight of the growing street children problem in his country remains strong in Charles' heart. He is unable to shut out their cries, the cries he understands so well, and he realizes he must respond.
Father to the Fatherless tells the true story of a man who makes a decision to sell everything he has to help the poor. It's a decision that goes so counter-intuitive to those around him that he is soon completely ostracized, forcing him to carry out what seems like an impossible and unexplainable mission.
Now, armed only with his relationship with God, Charles and his family struggle on physical, financial and spiritual fronts to rescue street children from the slums of Kenya and provide them with the hope of new life.

'Father to the Fatherless' was a great book, and I really enjoyed reading it. At some points this book was very difficult to read, for example when Charles' dad comes home. Right when he enters he starts beating Charles' mother up. This is all occuring right in front of him. As I was reading this I began to wonder what it would be like to be in Charles' shoes. The book continued in this sort of path, but I kept on reading. The other thing I loved about this book was the power of prayer. When Charles began to pray and believe in god fortune and great things happned to him. This helped me to understand, even through the hard times, you must believe in god and he will be there. All in all this book was great and i would reccomend it to anyone who likes memoirs, but can take harsh details.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
