Goodreads:  The latest emotional rollercoaster of a novel from a master of tearjerkers and family fiction.

Mac Anderson holds life in the palm of his hand. He has a beautiful wife, three loving children, a comfortable home, and a successful career. Everything is perfect—or so it seems. Tragically, Mac is destined to learn that any sense of security can quickly prove false. Because an invisible enemy called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has invaded Mac’s fragile mind and it is about to drop him to his knees. He does all he can to conceal his inner chaos, but to no avail. Left to contend with ignorance, an insensitive justice system, and the struggles of an invisible disease, he loses everything—most importantly his family.

One shoebox might store an old pair of sneakers. Two shoeboxes might contain a lifetime of photographs. But in Three Shoeboxes, a father’s undying love may be just enough to make things right again.

Ope’s Opinion: If you are a male or have a male reader in your life, I would suggest this book.  It is about PTSD, but it also about a man dealing with his emotions and learning how to share them.

Steven Manchester writes in such a way that sweeps you away into another world and you forget what time it is or what else you were suppose to be doing.  Although the subject is hard to read it went quickly.  It didn’t feel depressing or drag you down.
