Good evening Mr. Deal,
We really enjoyed your time with us at our school. I just finished your book. Congratulations! You did a wonderful job. I didn’t want to put it down.
What you say about boys and their fathers is so true. My first son grew up without his father. It has not been easy for me and especially for him. But also I think being fatherlessness affects girls as well. My father died when I was very young. I spent a lot of years making mistakes in relationships. I think not having him in my life left me inadequately prepared to find what I was looking for. Keep writing.
I look forward to the sequel.
