Family Drama

LoveReading View on Sleeping Father

I suppose it is easily done; chatting in the chemist as you follow a disgruntled customer who leaves his medication which you pick up by mistake and then take? Well, that’s how our Dad of two teenagers falls into his coma.  This is a tale of how the teenagers cope, how Dad copes once he’s awake and how the family cope, making this fresh American novel so poignant and refreshingly different.
