Women's Fiction

What would you do if you suddenly found yourself homeless, penniless, and without the one person you could depend on to support you no matter what? This is the situation that Travis Brown finds himself in. He might be able to cope, but for the fact that he is the single father to a precious four year old named Bella, who has been the guiding force in his life since he found out about her shortly after her birth.

Bella's mother Robin was a sickly young woman whose father tried to force her into the life he wanted her to live, and not the life she wanted. She had to sneak around to see Travis, and when she ended up pregnant it put such a strain on her frail body, that she almost died in her attempt to give life to her unborn child.

In her frail state Robin makes the decision to put her child up for adoption, but because she does name Travis as the father he finds out and halts the proceedings and gains custody of Bella. All has gone well until the fateful night when he lost his home and mother to a devastating fire. Now Travis is homeless, unemployed, and attempting to figure out a way to provide for his daughter if not long term, as least for the immediate future. When he meets Erin, who is suffering from her own loss at a local coffee shop he sees an opportunity to provide a safe haven for Bella while he undertakes a job that should provide a lot of fast cash.

However as is often the case...if something appears to be too good to be true it most likely isn't. Nothing goes as it should, and here is where the pages start flying. Will Travis and Erin two souls who have lost so much actually be finding their way back to a fulfilled rich life? I can't tell you that, as you'll need to read THE GOOD FATHER for yourself to find out.

What I can tell you is that THE GOOD FATHER is another page turning read from the very talented Diane Chamberlain, and that should you decide to add THE GOOD FATHER to your shelf or e-reader you will be in line for a great read.

SUMMARY

A beloved daughter. A devastating choice. And now there's no going back. Four years ago, nineteen-year-old Travis Brown made a choice: to raise his newborn daughter on his own. While most of his friends were out partying and meeting girls, Travis was at home, changing diapers and worrying about keeping food on the table. But he's never regretted his decision. Bella is the light of his life. The reason behind every move he makes. And so far, she is fed. Cared for. Safe. But when Travis loses his construction job and his home, the security he's worked so hard to create for Bella begins to crumble…. Then a miracle. A job in Raleigh has the power to turn their fortunes around. It has to. But when Travis arrives in Raleigh, there is no job, only an offer to participate in a onetime criminal act that promises quick money and no repercussions. With nowhere else to turn, Travis must make another choice for his daughter's sake. Even if it means he might lose her.
