The Nine Lessons...



The Nine Lessons by Kevin Milne

If there's a father in your life who enjoys golf this would make a pretty good father's day gift.

Augusta Witte revisits his estranged father one night after he finds out his wife is pregnant. Full of anger and blame he seeks to take out his frustration with impending fatherhood on the only person who he sees at fault for all the wrongs of his life, London Witte. Augusta's mother died when he was very young and he felt overshadowed by his father's love of golf as opposed to him. The night Augusta shows up at his father's door, London makes a deal with him, meet with him every month for nine months to play a round of gold and each month he will give Augusta a piece of the journal he kept of Augusta's mother, kept on gold score cards.

I found this to be sweet, but kind of overly so. The relationships between Augusta and his father and Augusta and his wife are believable. It came off as kind of preachy to me, so it would make a good gift if you or someone you know likes christian fiction.
