Books Info:

The Widow's Son free pdf Enjoy the music, politics, fashion, televison and movie fare of the 1960s. Did you know that 2 days before the blizzard of 1967 that brought the Midwest to a halt, it was a balmy 65 degrees? Or that Wild Thing by the Troggs kicked the Beatle's Paperback Writer off the top of the pop charts? Or that Gomer Pyle USMC replaced the Dick Van Dyke Show? These details unique to 1966 and 1967 also include the Apollo 1 disaster, what young men did to avoid the draft and Vietnam, and President Johnson's conclusion in 1966 that the Vietnam War had been as good as won. All of this incredible history, accurately researched and woven into this incredible story without a seam, presents a historic backdrop for a powerful tale of survival - and the determination of a neighborhood filled with beloved nuts and bolts who go beyond the call to save a broken family. And it all begins with these words of a child's lament - When I hear the news I want to jump on the dining room clock and make time go backwards . . . Based on the real life loss of the author's father, Bruce Steinberg brings his passionate tale home as told through the eyes of his oldest brother - a child on the cusp of manhood who does not easily take to wearing the crown of New Man of the House. The moment 12-year-old Jeremy Rosenberg witnesses his father's death, Jeremy loses the world he assumed would last forever. With a young brother expecting their father to yet come home, a sister blaming herself, and a mother falling toward isolation, Jeremy is sent fatherless into the world just as he enters adolescence. Beautifully and memorably set in mid-1960s Chicago suburbia, The Widow's Son is launched on a devastating moment. But this tale of misguided efforts and accidental triumphs of children forced into adult emotions creates a humorous, poignant novel. The reader's laughter and tears are sure to flow together to the last page as Jeremy battles to make his family into a family once again.

About Bruce Steinberg

Bruce Steinberg began to write The Widow's Son in order to better understand his brother, the unwilling New Man of the House, after their father died, not to achieve publication. He is grateful for the overall positive public and critical response. won. Husband and father, criminal defense attorney (as a prosecutor, public defender, and in in private practice, representing abused and neglected children). He has written freelance columns for the Chicago Daily Herald and Northwest Herald. Columnist for Silent Sports Magazine (Humor / Human Interest within the sporting world). Cross-country ski marathon racer and half-marathon runner. The Widow's Son brought healing to his family, years after his father died, and his old neighborhood's "loose nuts and bolts" gathered in support, cementing in literature a time, place, and people. Since then Bruce has gone on to write River Ghosts, a Kirkus star review mystery under the nom de plume BR Robb, and My Occasional Torment, nom de plume - Bee Robb, which he later adapted into a successful stage play. An Assassinated Man followed, also a based-on-fact true story in which the subject sought Bruce out because of the success and overall reviewer reaction to The Widow's Son. More books and stories are on the way, but The Widow's Son will always remain Bruce's fondest - a manuscript never intended for publication that healed, preserved, and soared.
