Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite Farmer's Son by N.E. Lasater is based loosely on true and tragic events.  Bobby McAllister is a genius when it comes to machinery; there is nothing he cannot do. So why does he always bow down to his tyrannical father when he knows he (his father) is wrong? Bobby is dyslexic. His father introduces him as his 'defective' son. He can read but only just, struggling to take in what is written in front of him. He gets through school by memorizing the night before, but almost comes undone when he is asked to read something in front of the class. Despite graduating and being offered a place as a trained diesel mechanic in Nashville, Bobby chooses to stay and work the farm with his father. Marriage and children follow, but still Bobby is under the thumb of Garret McAllister. Even when one of his own children is diagnosed with dyslexia, it doesn't stop. Through 3 generations, the story follows the trials and tribulations, the fear and the love. but the result is a needless tragedy. Farmer's Son by N.E. Lasater is a powerful story. So many people suffer from dyslexia and other learning difficulties and this book is for them.  But it's also for those who don't suffer, who cannot comprehend the daily fear of living with something that so many see as abnormal. They cannot comprehend the hurt that they cause because they don't understand. This is one novel that was truly written from the heart. Farmer's Son is a real page turner, one of those stories that you have to read to the bitter, tragic ending before you can fully comprehend the impact it has, not just on one life, but on many.
