Review by MARY ELIZABETH McILVANE.
For me, reading this heartfelt book about the former Vice President's relationship with his son Beau who died at a relatively young age of brain cancer was like I was living in the midst of their lives...father and son. It is a beautiful, honest story of the family, nationally recognized, living privately within their family. It is not only a blessing for our country, but a blessing on the importance of family relationships for two people who lives were devoted to public service for our United States. Thank you Joe and Beau!
