Steven Manchester in his new book, “The Rockin Chair book coverThe Rockin’ Chair” published by The Story Plant brings us into the lives of The McCarthy Family.

From the back cover:   Memories are the ultimate contradiction. They can warm us on our coldest days – or they can freeze a loved one out of our lives forever. The McCarthy family has a trove of warm memories. Of innocent first kisses. Of sumptuous family meals. Of wondrous lessons learned at the foot of a rocking chair. But they also have had their share of icy ones. Of words that can never be unsaid. Of choices that can never be unmade. Of actions that can never be undone.

Following the death of his beloved wife, John McCarthy – Grandpa John – calls his family back home. It is time for them to face the memories they have made, both warm and cold. Only then can they move beyond them and into the future.

A rich portrait of a family at a crossroad, The Rockin’ Chair is Steven Manchester’s most heartfelt and emotionally engaging novel to date. If family matters to you, it is a story you must read.

The Rockin’ Chair is a well-written, powerful portrayal of a family in crisis.  Families aren’t perfect, sometimes being in one can cause us pain.  However families are all we have and when there is a crisis families are all we can turn to.  Steven Manchester has written a book that shows how the McCarthy family deals with their particular crisis.  “The Rockin’ Chair” is a warm, wonderful, highly deeply involving, emotional story that will tug at your heart and make you tear up and you will enjoy every minute of it.  Mr. Manchester has given us a family that you feel as though you grew up with them they are so real. I am a fan of Steven Manchester.  I think you will be also once you have read this book.   Another great winner from the pen of a super talented author
