Not having had fathers left “gaping holes” in the lives of three African-American doctors whose personal and professional triumphs are movingly told in this exceptional audio. The production is organized in segments that combine each man’s story with that of his father. The segments also share how each author’s path changed after reconnecting with his father. The three stories emphasize how important it is for fathers to be successful role models and to provide the security a son needs to progress in life. In addition, the authors remind us of the rewards and responsibilities of deep friendship with a wife and children. Richard Allen’s narration of this important memoir couldn’t be more sensitive, warm, and connected to the book’s redemptive underpinnings. He wisely understates the narrative’s pathos, and his clear, consistent baritone is deeply satisfying from start to finish. T.W.
