This is a very riveting read. Justin and Don have captured some very intimate and exposed times for the seven men left widowed with children. They help these men restart their lives and gave them the support they needed to be the father and mother to the children who have lost their mother. It's amazing that this is the first group of its kind, it is clear that many many people would benefit from support groups like this. It is hopeful that this book will cause many more groups to be founded to support both single husbands and mothers who have lost their spouse get through the tough times and begin their lives again.
