Giveaway & Cover Reveal: A Good Man's Life


Synopsis:

Daniel Nash struggles to reconcile his feelings of betrayal with his desire to understand his life.  His hopes of uncovering the secrets revealed in his father’s journals are quickly dashed, and he works with a private investigator to discover the truth.  Worry about his wife, Sarah, combines with his efforts to cope with his childhood trauma, an unexpected death, and the recent revelations. His obsession with the past threatens to destroy his stable life.  Meanwhile, Sarah and her father, Tristan, continue to combat the lingering discord that developed between them years before but refuse to take their main focus from Daniel.  As he reviews his biological father’s efforts to be a good man, Daniel searches for a way to comprehend shocking disclosures.  He questions his own goodness as he fights not to emotionally withdraw from those around him, especially the two people he knows will always love him, Sarah and Tristan.   


To celebrate Barbara's new cover and forthcoming release, she's holding an awesome giveaway!  


Excerpt:

Although he felt Tristan’s arm go around his shoulders, Daniel kept studying the stars for several minutes.  Finally, he allowed himself to be pulled against Tristan’s chest.  Neither man spoke.  Neither man moved.
“I’m a poor substitute for Max,” Tristan offered.  “I wish there was more I could say or do for you.”
“You do fine,” Daniel insisted, as he shifted slightly and listened to the leather on his jacket move in tandem.  “You do better than Max if you want to know the truth.  You may not be a therapist, but you’re more of a father than he ever was.”
“He loved you, Dan.”
“I know.  He was an okay father, but he can’t compare to you, Tris.  It’s not the same.”
“I’m honored.”
“Don’t die on me any time soon, Tris.  Mom and Lillian are gone.  Max is gone.  I don’t want to lose any more parents for at least another five decades or so.”
“I’ll do my best,” he vowed, wrapping a hand around the side of Daniel’s head in a paternal gesture.
