A Letter To Evan

About The Book:  "Divorce changes everything.  It is disorienting, painful and disruptive.  One dad steps forward to illustrate how to rise about the destruction of divorce, become a better person, and yes, even a better father to his children.  Roy Page exposes his heart in A Letter to Evan.  What began as affirmation and instruction for his son has become a journey of healing, growth, and inspiration to men everywhere." 

Being a loving, effective parent when you are not a part of your child's daily life is challenging whether you are a father who travels or is divorced.  Roy Page shares how he has maintained a presence in the lives of his children.  As a man who enjoys hunting, fishing, sailing, and woodworking and possesses a deep desire to share these times of adventure with his son, Roy learns to navigate his extensive travel schedule along with Evan's hectic baseball schedule to find a way to connect.  Even if it means writing a letter." (Taken from the back cover of the book.)

About The Author:  Roy Page is CEO of Third Degree Advertising.  He jets between North Carolina and Oklahoma to keep his business and family going.  Losing his father to Alzheimer's disease and his wife of twenty years set Roy on a path to reset his priorities, discover the good in people, and dream of a better future.  Laugh cry, relate, grow, and heal with Roy in A Letter to Evan.

My Thoughts On The Book:  As a woman who was divorced, I have to say that this is one of the most touching books I have ever encountered in a long time. Even though the journey in the story is about a father and son, I found myself inspired to be a better person. His life lessons on imperfection, the stories of loss, the searching to find life after divorce hit close to home with me, having walked in his shoes.  The book reminded me that God loves us in spite of ourselves. One of the hardest lessons I had to learn through my divorce was forgiving myself and my ex-husband.  Pages shows us in his book just how we can open ourselves to our shortcomings and just "Let go and let God." This book is a wonderful book for male or female.  It touches the heart, shows us how to go on, and continue to live and grow.
