Story Description: 

A beloved daughter.  A devastating choice.  And now there's no going back.

Four years ago, nineteen-year-old Travis Brown made a choice: to raise his newborn daughter on his own. While most of his friends were out partying and meeting girls, Travis was at home, changing diapers and worrying about keeping food on the table.  But he's never regretted his decision.  Bella is the light of his life.  The reason behind every move he makes. And so far, she is fed.  Cared for.  Safe.  

But when Travis loses his construction job and his home, the security he's worked so hard to create for Bella begins to crumble….  

Then a miracle.  A job in Raleigh has the power to turn their fortunes around. It has to. But when Travis arrives in Raleigh, there is no job, only an offer to participate in a onetime criminal act that promises quick money and no repercussions.  

With nowhere else to turn, Travis must make another choice for his daughter's sake. 

My Review: 

Travis Brown is 23-years-old and raising his daughter, Bella on his own.  Bella is now four-years-old and her mother, Robin isn’t in the picture and Travis lost his mother in a house fire.  He and Bella are on their own and he takes his responsibility for Bella very seriously. 

Travis is working a construction job every day to make enough money to keep his beloved daughter in clothing and food.  One day, he loses his construction job and doesn’t know what he is going to do.  How is he going to keep feeding his sweet little, Bella?  Just when he’s worried, Travis gets word that there is a good job for him in Raleigh, North Carolina but when he gets there, there is no job.  Instead he is confronted with an opportunity to participate in a criminal act that will make him a lot of money. 

Will Travis turn to criminal behaviour to keep his daughter feed or will he turn it down for something else?  If he does decide to participate, will he also lose Bella?  Travis’ situation is dire and I’d never wish to be place in that type of scenario myself. 

Once you begin reading ‘THE GOOD FATHER’ you won’t be able to put it down until you’re done.  Very well-written!
