I truly enjoyed this book, about a father who has realized his cancer is terminal and decides to write a letter, that turns out to be a book, to his children and wife. The story is written from his point of view as he explains what he meant by certain things he did and said as they were growing up. He tells the truth of how he feels about his family, and how much they mean to him as well as the reasons behind his thoughts and actions. I honestly could not help getting emotional as I read it. Though there were moments when his memories made you laugh out loud.

"The Good Servant" is a fantastic read and I would recommend it to everyone. Doug Lucas writes with passion and feeling. I give it 5 Ravens!
