I loved spending time with Dan Roche and his family and what an important time it was as they faced life and death with courage, humor, and grace. He takes us right into their house the kitchen, bedrooms, and backyard to remind us again of the importance of each day we are given. His prose is as beautiful as it is efficient. This is a man who thinks clearly and in metaphors, and he has given us a wonderful book about loss and arrival, about the beginning, middle, and end of life. Now we have a father who has written, as Anne Lamott did in "Operating Instructions" and Louise Erdrich in "The Blue Jay s Dance," about the coming of a child. Mothers and children but especially fathers will thank him. Elizabeth Stuckey-French, author, "Mermaids on the Moon" In his insightful and funny account of a father waiting for the birth of his second child, Dan Roche has written an honest and touching exploration of a husband's feelings and thoughts during his wife s pregnancy. Roche tells of many lighthearted and humorous moments while still poignantly describing the ups and downs of life, particularly in the context of the pregnancy. Women should buy a copy of this book for their husbands because it should be required reading for them: Roche is the voice of silent fathers everywhere. Sharon O'Donnell, author, "House of Testosterone: One Mom's Survival in a Household of Males"
