He talked about a family that brought several gifts for Christmas, but were intercepted by his Father, who sold the gifts for alcohol.

Dr. Poduska was one of my professors. He was willing to write me a letter if recommendation when I applied to grad school, and one of his married children was a classmate. He never ever gave any indication of what his childhood had been like, so the story is surprising. What is not surprising is that he went into a field designed to help make, keep, and create healthy families. I look forward to reading this book, even if the ending is as rushed as the review states.
