Painful listen but worth it.

This was a very hard book for me to listen to but also gave me some insight into why and how fathers abandon their children, as my own children have been abandoned by their father. Having just finished listening I'm going straight back to the beginning to listen again, as I feel that there are layers of nuance I missed first time round. The narrator is excellent throughout.
