False Prophets and Sheepdogs
By: Parker Waits
I met Parker on Twitter about a week ago, he followed me and I checked out his bio and fell instantly in like. Apparently he’s a Marine who loves dogs and claims he’ll say mean things for attention. I was invited to be in a hashtag game after following him and it’s quite fun.
The best part about following Parker back is that he didn’t pimp his book to me but he checked out my blog and commented on it. It was quite kind of him.
Okay, on to the book review for my bloggers. The book is incredibly forthcoming and gritty. I guess I didn’t expect such hardcore truthfulness and woe. It’s beautiful, you’d expect a kind of brokenness from a Marine who’s been in action but he displays a wit and charm that only strong, faithful men; men who are born of fire and perseverance are capable of.
Obviously David is finding himself and I connect with him through this book on so many levels. From the mother who shows no love, to knowing the difference between duty and obligation for family when it comes to his brother.
For the women, I’m always talking about “manly men”, “old school men”, and my idea of what a man should be in a relationship and in life. Mr. Waits appears to be the real deal.
Please check it out. I think you’d all do well with a little bit of his honesty.
