David Succaar sometimes felt his name really did classify him. His name was often mispronounced 'sucker', and he was often accused of being just that. It had never occurred to him that his own children could be turned against him by his angry and spiteful ex-wife. He had never heard of Parental Alienation Syndrome, but he learned... and he learned the hard way.
What an anguishing story! David Succaar just cannot catch a break – and so much of that is his own fault. Even when you think things are finally going his way – a new life, new wife, new family – it still all comes crumbling down around him.
His is both victim and instigator. There is no doubt he is seriously victimized by his cruel and vindictive ex-wife, however, he ups the ante all on his own by turning his rights as a father into an ongoing obsession that cannot possibly end well for anyone involved.
Ms. Brewton’s stark prose brings the bleakness of the situation to light in a beautifully dark manner. You feel David’s pain and frustration in vivid detail as you are swept away as his life unfolds before your eyes.
Can David possibly get his happily ever after? You’re going to have to read and find out then, aren’t you? Otherwise you may just never know whether this well-meaning but misguided man will find peace in the end.
A definite must-read that is currently (as of this posting) free at Lulu.com. So, you see, there isn’t any reason to dawdle and not go pick it up.
