Max, a gifted artist and mentally challenged father of twin girls, faces life without his wife and anchor after her death from cancer. Evelyn, his soul mate, a woman given to equal simplicity and passion, and a model of normalcy in a home with high school girls, leaves a legacy of caring leadership that is suddenly threatened. Unable to accept his wife's passing as anything but depression, he lapses into the classic symptoms of his condition, and presents his daughters and extended family with the question of how to preserve that legacy and their family intact.
The family draws nearer despite their unique differences. After much personal and legal wrangling, Max returns to his former self at the brink of his twins' first prom night, a life that was hidden in plain sight, the vision reminiscent of his own chance meeting with their mother.
The travel of this family, not unlike so many in an unpredictable world, helps forge a model of leadership, in and outside the home, whose compelling nature may be the cause célèbre of a world in search of meaning.

Wow! This is a serious new author. Frank Rich has penned a richly-phrased, thoughtful, and sensitive story of the unique quality in each that too often goes uncelebrated. If you are at all invested in finding the person inside by relation to the stories of others, and the extraordinary power in woman to affect families, you must read Raising Father. You will not see others the same afterward.BE, Publishing & Multimedia Marketing Executive
