New York Times bestselling author ,Bruce Feiler ( known for his Walking the Bible book and subsequent PBS series) was living a charmed life. Happily married to his beautiful wife Linda they were in the busy throes of raising twin girls when the unthinkable happened. Bruce was diagnosed with bone cancer. Determined to leave his daughters a legacy he reaches out to six men who have made an impact on his life and asks each one for a piece of advice for his girls. Mr. Feiler chooses each man based on his unique perspective towards life. There's the skeptic, the dreamer, the adventurer, the encourager. Each man brings his own brand of wisdom and experience to the council.
The Council of Dads eloquently reminds us that it does indeed take a village and begs the question,"Are you utilizing your village?". Your friends and family have stories and experiences they need to share with your children. You have wisdom that can light their child's way.
An absolutely perfect Father's Day gift, this must read novel is as heartwarming as it is heart wrenching and will speak to anyone who is a parent or who loves a child.

What a wonderful book this sounds like it is. I'm thankful for all the friends and family that have influenced my children's lives and I hope my life has had an influence on others. Thanks for sharing this.

I heard about this book, and it sounds great, but unfortunately, there has been a little too much loss around here lately of people gone too young. I would probably be a crying wreck by the time I finished this book. But keep those book reviews coming. I have found some great books here!

That sounds really interesting. You always find good books. What fiction are you reading these days? I'm out of school now. Just about to finish an old John Grisham.
