The author of Chasing the Cyclone, sent me an e-copy of his book for review and to share my thoughts and reactions. The basic premise of the book is about a father, whose ex-wife takes their son across the world and details his quest to find his son and bring him home. A really compelling story that got me thinking about relationships and the changes that take place after a baby is born. In the book the mother actually takes off during her pregnancy to isolate her and the child prior to the actual birth, she also speaks negatively of the father to the child after the birth. Relationships are challenged and stressed with pregnancy and the subsequent birth and raising of the child. Even couples in the best of relationships can find themselves aggravated with their partner at 2 am when the baby won’t stop crying. This book really brought to light how scary it would be to bring a child into the world without a great partner to embark on the journey with. No matter what kind of relationship you are in, I think the most important question to ask yourself on a fairly regular basis is am I doing the best I can for my child? In the book, the father put this paramount and I think he achieved this.
