Overview

On a late spring day, a daughter waits at the airport for her parents' plane to land and a summer visit to begin. Before the summer is over, however, her father will come to live—and die—in her sunroom. And her newfound faith in her heavenly father will uphold her as she learns how to let go of the earthly father she adores.

But so much more happens in that brief season: a century of family memories unfolds like a beloved quilt. A father and daughter reconcile their differences about faith. A daughter takes her first tentative steps toward understanding her mother. And the story continues to unfold as several generations journey to bid good-bye to the man who has been the energetic center of their family.

    Riding the Dog: My Father's Journey Home

    I laughed and cried my way through this intimate, compassionate portrayal of a family's love and deep devotion to a wonderful father. I believe it was a divinely inspired gift to Jan Groft, from the Lord and her father, to write this moving testimony to God's saving grace and mercy. Those who read it cannot help but be touched and drawn closer to a faith that completely trusts in the outcome of God's plan for their lives.

As I had read this book, I had laughed, cried & enjoyed her method of writing. This is a book that should be on EVERYONE'S MUST READ LIST!! When is your next book coming out, Jan Groft?

    A heart-felt story of a woman letting go of her father.

    I loved the book! I cried, laughed, and felt a renewed sense of what family is.
