E's Favorite Books of 2014: #1 Surviving Goodbye by Morgan Parker


In the final hours of her life, Elliot Fitch’s wife confesses that he is not the biological father to their 16-year old daughter.

Surviving Goodbye follows Elliot’s collision course with Fate as he embarks on a journey to locate his daughter’s real father. When Elena, now seventeen years old, announces her unplanned pregnancy and the father’s unwillingness to play a role in their child’s upbringing, Elliot faces an ironic dilemma about the true meaning of parenthood and the roles we play in the lives of others, particularly those we love and who love us in return.

Mini Review
Surviving Goodbye is my favorite book of the year and another book I added to my all-time favorite list. The story of Elliot, a man who finds out before his wife passes away that he's not the biological of their daughter is a remarkable book. Morgan Parker delivers a superb story as Elliot sets out to find the truth. Surviving Goodbye is one book you'll want to read.
