My " in a nutshell" summary...

Dysfunctional family, stay at home dad, wife starting to stray, dad takes son and runs away!

My thoughts after reading this book...

You never really know what is going on in people's lives.  They can look happy and settled and the truth can be quite the opposite.  Logan and his wife Julie and their son Logan are adjusting to the death of Logan's dad just four months ago.   Logan doesn't get his 4 year old's regression and trouble in school or the fact that his wife is a workaholic attorney and seems to be wasting away.  He sees his wife with another man and just takes his son and runs...to his dad's cabin and his dad's widow...with whom he seems to have a complicated relationship.
What results is poor decisions made by Logan, his wife's anger and ultimately his return home.  

What I loved about this book...

I loved being inside of Logan's head...seriously.  He had to do all the things he did in order to come full circle and understand his dad, his son, his wife and most of all himself. 

What I didn't love...

Logan's choices and feelings and how he seemed to be alone.  That was kind of sad...along 
with some of his destructive behaviors...

Final thoughts...

I found this book to be an interesting look at a man who needed to make some life altering changes in order to make peace in his family and find his own peace.  I think he did.
