1 New & Used Starting at $19.09


Author Christopher Doyle writes a poignant and moving tale of a young man coming of age and facing life's most difficult challenges-the death of his father and the adjustment of watching his mother find love with another man. Lessons from the Cape brilliantly captures the intricacies of the heart-loss, love, grief, forgiveness and acceptance.
Brendan Talbot is nine years old when his father dies of a heart attack. Three years later, Brendan becomes man of the house and assumes the role of taking care of his mother, Marybeth and his nine-year old sister, Trina. Marybeth meets a new man, Steve, and Brendan's role is threatened.
Marybeth takes the family to Steve's beach cottage on Cape Cod and Brendan soon finds that he and Steve share common ground-Steve's son died about the same time Brendan lost his father. The two become friends enjoying beach activities such as boogie boarding and exploring the gorgeous beaches of the Cape. They cautiously begin a relationship and the Talbots begin to believe that perhaps they can become a family.
Tragedy strikes and changes everything. What lessons do they learn from each other and will they ever be a whole family again?
Doyle writes a first-rate novel concerning matters of the heart. For children and adults alike, Lessons from the Cape will resonate with anyone who has experienced loss and what it means to begin healing toward a new life.
