Memories are the ultimate contradiction. They can warm us on our coldest days – or they can freeze a loved one out of our lives forever. The McCarthy family has a trove of warm memories. Of innocent first kisses. Of sumptuous family meals. Of wondrous lessons learned at the foot of a rocking chair. But they also have had their share of icy ones. Of words that can never be unsaid. Of choices that can never be unmade. Of actions that can never be undone.
Following the death of his beloved wife, John McCarthy – Grandpa John – calls his family back home. It is time for them to face the memories they have made, both warm and cold. Only then can they move beyond them and into the future.
A rich portrait of a family at a crossroad, THE ROCKIN' CHAIR is Steven Manchester’s most heartfelt and emotionally engaging novel to date. If family matters to you, it is a story you must read.

Lessons in faith, we all need to read such wonderfully written books. This is not the first book that I have read by Steven that knocked my socks off. It is such a fantastic book. I love books with lessons in faith.
You will not be able to put this book down once you open it and star reading it.
Yes I cried while reading this book but don't you think that makes a book so much better when you have such deep emotions while reading.
I am happy to say this is a must read book that I recommend.
I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review.
