From the book flap: In this humorous and poignant novel, Edward Hardy explores the depths of modern love, parenthood, and compromise. Keeper and Kid is the story of how a normal guy receives an unexpected gift and in turn must learn to ask more of others and himself. A coming-of-age story for the guy who thought he had already grown up, Keeper and Kid is a sharp and witty account of what we do for love.
James Keeper is moving happily through life in Providence working at a job he enjoys and living with the woman he loves (but won’t marry). Then, one day, he gets a call to come to a hospital in Boston – and that changes pretty much everything.
I almost gave up on this one. Really, I felt so annoyed through most of it. But I hate to quit after reading half a book. So I kept going. It was ok. I didn’t love it but felt better about ‘things’ when I finished it. If you decide to read it, please let me know your thoughts. I’m curious. For now I’ll just return it to the library.
