The Guncle by Steven Rowley – Book Review

Patrick was the star of a huge sitcom who lives alone in Palm Springs since his partner died. When his best friend dies after a long illness and her husband, Patrick’s brother, admits to becoming addicted to painkillers, Patrick takes their two children until . their father comes out of rehab.

Initially, this was a light read, a bit silly and it didn’t really grab me. But then I kept reading, and the way the characters dealt with, and didn’t deal with, their grief and finding a new way after losing someone significant became… wonderful. I didn’t expect to come to enjoy this book so much.
