This Was Not the Plan by Cristina Alger

Leave a comment

Thirty-two years in, Charlie’s life was going well.  Married to the love of his life, almost partner in a prestigious law firm, with a 4 year-old son, Caleb, everything was on track for a successful and happy life.

Then tragedy struck, leaving him a broken-hearted widower and a single dad.  At least he still had his stressful, 12 hour-a-day employment, on track for a well-deserved partnership, right?

Well, not for long. After an uncharacteristic drunken incident at a work function, Charlie finds himself unemployed, and spending more time with Caleb on his own.

This is the heartwarming story of a man struggling to make his way through difficult circumstances, while discovering how to be a good father to his special son.
