The initial description caught my eye. Lowell, a long haul truck driver, is in a dark place. He carries a bottle of pills in his pocket and is almost constantly feeling for them. He is thinking of suicide to end his meaningless life. The only reason he hasn’t followed through is because of his little dog Rufus. Rufus has a tumor that could be cancer. If he dies Lowell does not know any reason to go on with his own life.
Lowell grabbed my heart and pulled many times. He has deep issues troubling him from a couple of things that happened his senior year in high school. An incident that happened involved his then best friend Alan. Both of their lives in years since has taken drastic opposites. Alan seems to be the Golden Boy with everything good happening in his life. He is self absorbed and looks down on those he thinks are wasting their lives. Lowell is in a very depressed state with no help from therapy and very little to live for in his mind. What happens to each of them throughout this novel is eye opening in many ways. A story of guilt, forgiveness and sometimes second chances.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through Celebrate Lit but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.
