Based on the life of Stephen Mateo's father, we are led from his childhood in the Canary Islands to the present day in the U.S. & Canada. Something his family was never aware of until the night before his 50th Wedding Anniversary. His journey shows his courage, his fortitude & his love of family but those are just words.
Do yourself a favor & buy this book - you can't go wrong & you won't be sorry. I'm so glad I went on this Journey!
Read the book. It's a tale of inspiration and passion.
Stephen Mateo wrote this book about his father's secret past. Something that he has hidden from his children through the years, now that he is old and sick, he shares it with his son. The book moves from present day to the past very fluently.
It is truly surprising to think you know someone and then realise there is something much more to that person than you could have possible imagined.
I highly recommend it.
