The Nine Lessons by KEVIN ALAN MILNE

August Witte is terrified as he fins out his wife of seven years is pregnant and in seventh heaven about it. What does he know about fatherhood? Nada!

His father London, a widower since August was toddler, has taught him nothing. London is big into golf and a whole lot less into thoughts of his son.

August now confronts his father about his hatred of golf and of London's failure to be a father to him.

It took a bit for me to get to the meat of this story, but when it came, oh boy! What a great way London used to teach his son about fatherhood. But August is a little rebellious, wait, alot because he feels golf is such a waste of his time. But to spend time and learn from his dad, he goes along with the golf outings. The story kept building that I couldn't wait to get to the end. And end it does, but beautifully with a cute twist.

I gave it four stars
