After his wife receives some devastating health-related news, she makes him promise that they will go on a grand adventure. And thus begins YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE; a true story of the author and his wife’s journey to bike The Great Allegheny Passage and the C&O Canal Towpath trails – all 350 miles.

YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE hit close to home for me in several ways, making it hard to put down. The author writes with such an easy-going tone that it feels like a good friend is telling you their story. He’s candid when speaking about his upbringing, family, religion, marriage, and feelings about the bike trip. The witty writing balanced out more serious parts. It’s hard not to think about your own relationships and how you respond to hardships while reading. This book is a nice reminder that humor can ease the burden of our difficulties and help us persevere.

YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE is a heartwarming story of love, friendship, and what it means to truly keep a promise. I’d recommend this book.

Thank you to Zondervan for the finished copy.
