Fortunately my two daughters, aged 12 and 14, decided that they wanted to live with me and, together, we rebuilt our lives.
In the beginning I was sad, angry, frustrated and scared that I would not be able to cope with my new life. But I was wrong. Gradually I learned how to deal with the trauma and loneliness of separation, manage a house, balance work and home life, find new love - and, most importantly, become a better father.
This book tells my story. It is not intended to be a 'how to' guide. I wrote it to provide encouragement, advice and ideas to help men firstly survive and then excel as single fathers, and also to share a laugh over some of my experiences.
I wrote it because when my own marriage failed, I couldn't find a book to help me. I hope this book shows all soon to be, newly, or long term single fathers that there is life after divorce - and that it can be a good one.
