Route 47 – Molly Faris

“I’m in big trouble, aren’t I?” is Dad’s response when Mom tells him he is terminal. This true-life novel is told through the eyes of Molly, a funny, unrefined, now Californian who returns home to take care of her dying father. She has been distant from her Midwestern family but is now stuck in her childhood living room with her mother, whom she never agreed with, and her father, whom she thought was a wonderful man, but learns he is burdened with guilt. He fights for peace as he travels through his past and reaches for his Heaven. Molly’s golf-filled childhood is relived through her father’s final round as she guides him down his final fairways.
