Matt finds a sky lantern broken and crushed in his backyard, and when he smoothes it out he sees the message “Love you, Dad. Miss you so much. Steph.” As a father of three daughters, Matt could not let this heart-wrenching note go unanswered. Not sure on how to find “Steph” he posts an open letter to her on his blog, which goes viral overnight. Little did he know how that small act of kindness would lead him to the real Steph and change his family’s life in remarkable ways.
Matt Mikalatos offers a compassionate look at a father’s relationship with his children, the healing power of a small act of kindness, and the certainty that even death can’t stop love in this deeply moving memoir. The reviewer enjoyed this read about what it means to love, to be loved, and to love well.
