Daniel Peterson's life was all planned out. His upcoming marriage would guarantee him the lifetime corner office in her father's firm, complete with the highest social standing, country club memberships...even golf lessons.
But then the phone rang. It seems the father he never knew has passed away, leaving him a tidy inheritance. To claim it, Dan is tasked with scattering his father's ashes, but under the most bizarre conditions and circumstances he could possibly imagine. This sends Dan on a wild, cross-country adventure of discovery - and self-discovery. As he comes to know his father, he is also forced to re-evaluate himself and all he holds dear. This is a heart-warming tale that redefines friends and family, and will leave you laughing with a tear in your eye.

A Journey I would have loved to have gone on

What did you love best about My Father's Ashes?

My father passed away in 2009. I miss him every day. I knew my dad, unlike Daniel in this story. However I would have loved to have had a series of journey's to go on to learn my father, as he was beyond our family.

What was one of the most memorable moments of My Father's Ashes?

Daniel began to see similarities between himself and the father he never knew was nicely handled and I loved the transformation from going through the motions to living for the next adventure. I loved seeing the main character beginning to recognize his father in his own self along the way.

Which character – as performed by Dave Cruse – was your favorite?

David Cruse does a beuatiful job of narrating, although at the beginning I found the falsetto he employed for some of the female characters off putting, but by the end I no longer heard the falsetto but only heard the character. He was consistent throughout with the tonal shifts he employed for the various characters and did a very nice job overall.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this book over a series of days, although I would have liked to have had time for a one day listen. I have no doubt that I will revisit this at some point for a second listen. It is a book so full of detail that I am sure I will here new things every time I listen.

Any additional comments?

I was provided a copy of this audio book free of charge through a promotion. However, I would have purchased it because the description caught my attention.

Very Enjoyable and Quite Different !!

What a pleasant surprise. A very different "quest" story of a man who never knew his father. Good characters and locations. Wanted it to continue. Highly recommend this book.
