The Namesake – Steven Parlato – Review

The Namesake by Steven Parlato

Wow! I love this book! It’s so intense and soul touching. It’s a page turner full of secrets to discover.

My attention was kept from beginning till the last page. I found myself crying, laughing, praying, thinking & wanting to read more.

This story is about suicide, molestation, sins, forgiveness, discovering hurting ugly secrets, everything through the vision of a fifteen year boy whose father killed himself apparently without a reason.

For Evan it’s not easy to face his father’s past, nor to read his old journal. He is searching for answers and discovers old family secrets.

I like the way the sensitive secrets are revealed and I appreciate the author’s work.  Thank you!
