A brilliant tear jerker of a novel that I simply could not put down. A magnificent piece of writing filled with family values, joy, and immense sorrow. What Luke Allnutt brings to the table with this book is bound to make even the toughest of people weep over its pages. The story follows Rob, Anna, and their seven-year-old son Jack as they try to power through Jack’s cancer diagnosis. This may be a hard book to read for a lot of people because if you fall in love with these three characters like I did you will laugh, smile, and cry along with this family. Highly recommended this one!
A triumphant story of a father and his little boy--and a love that knows no limits.Rob Coates is a survivor. He'd thought he'd won the lottery of life--a beautiful home, an incredible wife Anna, and their precious son Jack, who makes every day an extraordinary adventure. But when tragedy befalls his family, Rob becomes his own worst enemy, pushing away all he holds dear. With his world now suddenly just outside of his grasp, Rob turns to photography, capturing the beautiful skyscrapers and clifftops he used to visit--memories of the time when his family was happy. And just when it feels as though there's nowhere left to turn, Rob embarks on the most unforgettable of journeys to reclaim the joy and love he thought he'd lost. Deeply emotional, beautifully written, and filled with tremendous heart, We Own the Sky is a soaring debut about the strength of the human spirit and the boundlessness of love. It is a stunningly honest reminder of life's greatest gifts, showing how even a broken heart can learn to beat again.
